In 2008, WIF awarded a $98,000 education grant to Freedom School Partners to support a Freedom School camp. The plan was to learn from that project and scale the program and expand that opportunity to more children who could benefit from their six-week, literacy-rich summer camp.
The purpose of the Women’s Impact Fund is to maximize women’s leadership in philanthropy by engaging and educating our membership, increasing charitable contributions and strengthening communities through the impact of collective giving.
