As of fiscal year 2020 the Women Who Care organization has 255 members and has awarded over $262,000!
Who can be a member of WWC?
A member of WWC can be any philanthropic woman seeking to support community needs in Elk County. Membership is on a yearly basis. When you commit to donating a minimum of $100 you will be deemed a member with voting privileges to determine which organizations receive a grant from the Women Who Care Fund that year. Here’s how to join!
As a member, how am I involved in WWC?
WWC members are invited and encouraged to attend two events each year, a spring social event, and our annual meeting held in October where you have a voice in choosing which organizations receive a grant. Both events are a wonderful gathering of area women who have an interest in supporting worthy projects in their communities. The events are fun-filled and accomplish a great purpose at the same time!
How does an organization apply for a grant?
Each year, WWC awards grants to eligible 501c3 organizations that enhance the quality of life for families in Elk County. WWC grant applications are available on our website or by contacting the Foundation.
Who decides which charitable organizations receive grants?
The grants will be awarded by a competitive grant-making process, and all members can provide input. Grant recipients are voted on by our membership at our annual meeting.
