WOMEN’s mission is to help less fortunate women and children in southwestern Pennsylvania. As part of that mission and in addition to our philanthropic event, money is disbursed from September through June throughout Western Pennsylvania to help charities with emergency situations. Should you have a suggestion of a new potential recipient, please contact the Philanthropic Chair at firstname.lastname@example.org. An Emergency Fund is also available for various emergency requests during the year.
With government subsidies to public service organizations shrinking, it is up to the private sector to do as much as possible to compensate for funding cuts. We are proud to have disbursed approximately $626,000 from proceeds from our annual fund raiser, The Symphony of Food.
WOMEN of Southwestern PA, Inc. accepts grant applications in the spring for funding requests up to $2,500 from non-profit charitable and community organizations located in southwestern PA.
To qualify, the organization must:
WOMEN participate in the Jefferson Awards annually by giving one of the finalists a $1,000 award.
WOMEN of Southwestern PA has been awarded the Outstanding Philanthropy Organization award from the Association of Fundraising Professionals western PA for 2018.
