Women United in Philanthropy’s Mission: Engage with like-minded women, learn about community needs and philanthropy, and leverage collective giving to support human services for local women and children.

THE MORE YOU GIVE, THE MORE WE GIVE!

Women United in Philanthropy is a Collective Giving organization and our members are the center of our success. Together, members of WUP have given more than half a million dollars to local non-profits and are profoundly impacting women and children in our region.

We warmly welcome you and hope to grow our membership each year. As we have already voted on our 2021 grant recipients, all new and renewing memberships will now be directed to our 2022 collective fund. Please contact us with any questions.
