Women in Philanthropy

Formed To Change Lives In Santa Cruz County
Women in Philanthropy is a movement of women creating opportunities for a better life in Santa Cruz County.

Women in Philanthropy members invest in quality school-based initiatives, advocate for better policies, engage people in the community, and generate resources. Women in Philanthropy currently receives a generous corporate grant from Bank of America to help fund the programs. 

Women in Philanthropy invests their raised funds in services which help children succeed in school and prepare them for a self sufficient adulthood.  Current school-based initiatives supported by Women in Philanthropy include:
