THIS YEAR WE CELEBRATE OVER $100,000. IN GRANTS !!!

Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much. – Helen Keller

We are excited to have exceeded $100,000. in grants. They were presented to outstanding organizations that impact many people, in many ways, in many places!  This has been accomplished by collectively distributing our member contributions of  $365. per year (representing $1.  per day). Perfectly illustrating Helens sentiment and the purpose of Women4Given.  Our Celebration is shared with all of the recipients.  And, grants are always accepted with gratitude and grace.
