An Open Invitation

This is your opportunity to engage with influential business and philanthropic leaders, decision makers and like-minded individuals who believe strong women make a better world. Women Helping Women Fund hosts educational and networking events throughout the year to support our mission to advance women and their families. Your participation, sponsorship or generous gift is an investment in women, girls and families, empowering them to make better communities and a better Spokane.

Giving Circle

Thank you for being part of the circle.

The Giving Circle Reception is a tradition grounded in philanthropy.

The event ensures that 100% of funds raised at the Annual Benefit Luncheon goes directly to the local programs who need it most – and you will learn about opportunities to lend your time and talent. Together, we continue a legacy of community engagement, and empower our women and children to create healthy families and vibrant communities.


Help us expand the circle, by inviting yours!
