On Tuesday, September 11, 2018, Women United in Philanthropy (WUP) awarded $60,000 in grants, $30,000 each to two local non-profits serving women and children in Charlottesville and surrounding counties. The recipients were announced at the 2018 Human Services Grant Award Luncheon. Including these grants, WUP has awarded over $500,000 to local organizations.

“We are very excited to present grants to the Building Goodness Foundation and International Neighbors,” said Jennifer Lehman, WUP’s Steering Committee Chair. “These grants from Women United in Philanthropy will provide healthcare to refugee families in our community, build a local playground for a budding Head Start program, and more. All of this is possible through the generosity of WUP members and the power of collective giving.”

All WUP grants are funded through membership, and the 2019 WUP membership drive has just begun. Individual Membership starts at just $100, with Corporate and Underwriter opportunities available.
