Our Mission

Our mission is to engage women in philanthropy and to collectively fund grants to charitable initiatives that serve the Town of Greenwich, Connecticut. The goal is to identify unmet needs in the community and provide grants worthy of impactful change to Greenwich for not for profits.  We are committed to promoting volunteerism by exposing our Membership to many local worthwhile charities.  We help our Members become more educated and informed about philanthropic choices and meet like-minded women who share their interests.
