IECF Women’s Giving Fund

The Women’s Giving Fund (WGF) is an inclusive opportunity for female donors to learn about women’s economic security issues, focus giving on issues impacting women and children, and experience the power of collaborative philanthropy.

To support the Women’s Giving Fund and help uplift women and their families in the IE, make a gift today.

Women Helping Women in Times of Need

On May 28, 2020, members of the Women’s Giving Fund held a virtual event to announce grants to two local nonprofits who focus on helping women. The desire was to provide additional support to local organizations who need a little extra to provide needed services during the COVID crisis.

WGF Selects Moses House Ministries for $5K Grant

Toward the end of 2020, the Women’s Giving Fund selected Moses House Ministries for a $5,000 grant! in December. The funds were used to support mothers and their families in the High Desert for basic needs such as food and diapers, and for the future reopening of the organization’s thrift store recently shut down because of the pandemic.

We are also grateful that this fund has grown, through the generous support of new donors, and we look forward to more events and outreach to bring more IE women into philanthropy.
