May 2 - Awards luncheon

Attention 2010 Women’s Fund members:

We hope you have enjoyed exploring the agencies and programs described in the ballot materials sent to you last month and the new ballot and research information we've provided on our website (CLICK HERE) to help you make your ballot decisions. As you know, the agencies that receive the most votes will receive grants totaling $565,000 - so your vote is important!

Past Women's Fund grants have fed the hungry, housed the homeless, provided education and health care to children and families and so much more. Your contributions have helped change lives in our community. Please continue to make a difference in the lives of local women, children and families by directing where our grants should be awarded.

Ballot deadline is April 8
