Our mission is to engage women in philanthropy and to collectively fund grants for charitable initiatives in the Westchester region.

The goal is to identify unmet needs in the region and provide transformational grants to Westchester nonprofit organizations.

In addition to funding projects, our rigorous review and evaluation of grant proposals will raise awareness of many charitable organizations while inspiring our members to become more personally involved with these charities.
