Women to Women

What We Do

Each day, more than 40,000 women in our community struggle to put food on the table, to keep themselves and their children safe and healthy, and to lift themselves up from poverty and lack of opportunity. 

Why women?

Women to Women awards high impact grants annually to programs, organizations and projects that create positive and measurable impact. Since 2010, we have granted over $1 million to 23 organizations serving women of Greensboro.

Why women? When you invest in women, you invest in stronger, more stable families and communities. You develop capable workers, people who produce more, save more, and spend more, right now and 30 years from now. You raise a generation of healthier kids with brighter futures, and you lower the cost of everything from public safety to social services to healthcare.

Invest in women, and you invest a society that works—for everyone.
