Washington Women’s Foundation Inaugural Grantee Fair
December 5, 2018
3:00 PM – 6:00 PM
2100 24th Avenue S. #330
Worldwide Fistula Fund was excited and honored to be invited to participate in the inaugural Washington Women’s Foundation Grantee Fair. The Grantee Fair was an event opportunity for foundation members and the greater community to meet, learn from and engage with past grantees. WFF received a partner grant from the Foundation in 2011 (through the One By One organization, prior to the merger).
WFF is especially proud because the selection process for Grantee participation was based on a vote by the foundation’s membership. WA Women’s Foundation members were asked to decide which Grantee organizations they most wanted to hear from and they selected Worldwide Fistula Fund as one of 13 organizations to be invited. WFF was there to provide information and promote volunteer opportunities.
The Grantee Fair took place on December 5th from 3:00 PM – 6:00 PM at the 2100 Building in Seattle.
Worldwide Fistula Fund thanks everyone who dropped in for a visit!
Washington Women’s Foundation
In 1995, Colleen Willoughby and four other visionary women, Rhoda Altom, Suzanne Lile Hunter, Anne V. Farrell, and Faye Sarkowsky, established the Washington Women’s Foundation. Together, they gathered over a hundred smart, talented, and motivated women, who agreed to combine resources to tackle the most complex issues facing our communities. The result was a then-new model of women-powered philanthropy rooted in community. We knew from the start that our collective impact is more powerful and more enduring than what any one of us can do alone. Today they uphold the groundbreaking spirit that has long been part of our DNA.
