Review for Washington Area Women's Foundation, Inc., Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The mission of Washington Area Women's Foundation is compelling: to foster a powerful wave of philanthropy in order to improve the lives of women and children in the Washington Metropolitan Area. The Foundation makes grants to organizations that are doing exemplary work on behalf of women and girls. It uses metrics to determine the effectiveness of its grants. I am convinced that grants made by WAWF are carefully and usefully placed in organizations that can use them best. I have been grateful for the opportunity it has afforded donors to learn about the many effective nonprofits in our city and the many friendships that have evolved from my involvement in WAWF.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

helping many nonprofits move to the next step of their development.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make sure every woman in town knew about the Foundation.

Role:  Volunteer & I have served on the Board, chaired the Luncheon Committee and served on grant review committees.
