Global Women   Partners in Philanthropy
Origin of the Model

Washington Women’s Foundation

In September 1995, five visionary women established the Washington Women’s Foundation (WWF), enabling women to pool their financial resources to make large high-impact gifts to improve the Seattle community, while developing their skills as philanthropists. The approach was innovative and appealing and attracted over 100 Seattle-area women to be founding members. Now, over 16 years later, the Washington Women’s Foundation has over 500 Seattle-area women as members and has invested over $11 million in hundreds of nonprofit organizations across Washington State through large pooled and individual grants. This unique model for philanthropy has inspired 30 similar women’s philanthropic groups across the U.S.The concept of giving together allows more individuals to participate in philanthropy and provides members the opportunity to leverage their single gift with others for maximum benefit to their communities.
