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

Rating: 5 stars  

I have experience with the Washington Area Women's Foundation in many different ways - as a Board Member of a Grantee Partner, as a donor and as a volunteer.

From every vantage point, the work of the Washington Area Women's Foundation is truly exemplary. As a Grantee, the Foundation was incredibly supportive, creative and flexible. It was an incredible resource for our organization.

And my respect and admiration for the Foundation has only grown with my additional experience as a volunteer and a donor. They treat grantees with respect and care about the work they are doing, but also about the health of the organization, which is unusual.

As a philanthropy professional, I've been very impressed that the Women's Foundation really walks the walk, as well as talking the talk.

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

the way that it encouraged, supported and strengthened the nonprofit that assisted women coming home from prison, when I was a Board member.

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

encourage them to find more ways to communicate their work to the community and to create more opportunities for community members to get involved with the work of the Foundation.

Role:  Donor & Attended WAWF workshops, participated in the Leadership Awards selection committee, went on a site visit, hosted a fundraiser.
