Through their generosity of spirit, and leadership, they have blazed trails to make a difference in the lives of women and girls in our community.
At this signature event, we also recognized outgoing Chair,
Susan Haigh Houpt, for her dedication, leadership and support
since our inception in 2006. We take great pride that during
Susan’s tenure the Women’s Fund has awarded more than $273,000 in scholarships, emergency funds and grants
to help women and girls make meaningful choices that will enhance their futures.
