About Us

The Twin Ports Women’s Foundation began when a small group of like-minded women came together to discuss creating a group of local women who wanted to make a difference. The plan: an easy way for women to make a huge impact without having to give more time!

Twin Ports Women’s Foundation is an all-volunteer organization which relies on the skills and talents of its members. We strive to be an inclusive, diverse organization of women who will grow as knowledgeable philanthropists in supporting our local nonprofits.

Our purpose is to strengthen the Twin Ports community through collective giving and increasing charitable donations in our region, to promote women’s leadership in philanthropy and to engage and educate our membership.

The Twin Ports Women’s Foundation grants to organizations nominated by members.
