2018 Site Visits - Additional Opportunities
Additional Site Visits to our Grantees
Most of the site visits that were offered originally have been sold out. Three of the most popular grantees have agreed to allow one additional visit. These newly offered visits are available for registration now. Registration for these visits closes at 6:00 pm on October 12.
We celebrated with the seven 2017-18 Women’s Fund grantees when they accepted their grants last May at our Presentation of Grants Reception. At our Site Visit Kick-Off on September 24, we learned how the grantees are using the funds to change lives in the community. Now we have the opportunity to experience personal visits with the grantees and some of their clients. (See below for a description of each of our seven grants.)
Make your own schedule and experience our Women’s Fund grants in action. Click the Register Now button above or below to make your selection.
The grantees need to limit the number of guests per visit so it is important that you register as soon as possible. Opportunities are booked on a first-come-first-served basis.
Visits will take place between October 9 and November 15, 2018.
Please do not contact the grantees directly. They have provided specific dates and times when they can accommodate Women’s Fund members and their guests.
