Women from the Westman area have made an impact by way of collectively giving $47,750 to 16 local charities in our community over the past four years.
The 100 Women Who Care (WWC) group’s initial contribution boosts the Women’s Endowment Fund held with BACF, which now sits at $87,000. This fund provides annual grants supporting issues affecting girls, women and their families in our community.
We are women who share the common desire to give back and inspire local philanthropy in our communities. As women, we know what it is like to be stretched for time and resources but still feel the strong pull to help others – that is why we have created this group.
