About the Women's Fund of Greater Green Bay
The Women's Fund hosts two events each year. The Girlfriends event is a concert held during an evening in either April or May. The Power of the Purse event is a fundraising luncheon held every September. Check out the website
for further details about these two events.
At the 2013 Power of the Purse, held on September 26, the campaign was announced:
The Women’s Fund of Greater Green Bay is proud to announce the launch of a new campaign to impact the lives of women and girls in our community. Our goal is to raise $1.0 million to fund a new $500,000 impact grants program and increase the Women’s Fund Endowment by $500,000 in order to increase the Women’s Fund annual grant making . To date, the Women’s Fund annual grant making program has granted out more than $239,000 to over 60 community initiatives, and this campaign will help the Women’s Fund address even more on-going needs related to women and girls in the community. At the same time, the Women’s Fund Impact Grant program will seek to grant funds to a game-changing, collaborative community strategy that will empower girls ages 9-15 to dream about what can be in their lives, identify goals, and develop personal and realistic pathways to get there.
We all have been influenced by women in our lives. The roles of wife, mother, sister, friend, and co-worker have meaning to us all. This community cause directly impacts the lives of women and girls, but the cause means a great deal to men and boys as well. When women and girls have positive self-esteem they are more successful in all aspects of their lives Investing in the Women’s Fund creates strong and healthy families and community. I am….You Are...We Are the Women’s Fund! Won’t you join with us and help enrich the lives of women and girls, and the life of the community?
