Your year-end gift helps the WNY Women’s Foundation reach even more women and girls in our community through our impactful work.


Every young girl had the self-confidence to not let obstacles stand in the way of her dreams?

Every woman had compensation equal to her male counterpart?

Every female professional had mentors and systems to rise to a leadership role?

Every single mom had the support she needed to achieve economic empowerment?


The WNY Women’s Foundation makes “What If?” a reality

Our Impact Grants are empowering 242 girls this year to develop STEM and leadership skills and build self-confidence and resiliency.

Our MOMS: From Education to Employment program has helped over 350 single mothers remove barriers to attaining higher education and lift families out of poverty.

Our ALL IN initiative creates a more equitable workplace by addressing barriers women face in the workplace with policies and practices to develop a pipeline of women leaders and a culture of gender equity.

Together, your support will help us reach even more women and girls in WNY.
