Friends and Partnerships
March, 2013 Giving WoMN granted Oasis for Youth $12,000 for its work with suburban youth experiencing unstable housing and homelessness. “Giving WoMN is proud to partner with Oasis for Youth and support the work they are doing in our community,” said Giving WoMN President Laura Dale. “We were truly inspired by their mission and look forward to watching the organization grow with the help of our funds.”
Giving WoMN is a member-driven, pooled fund, grant-making organization. Their primary goal is to educate women about philanthropy, and through collective giving make impact grants in our community to address pressing, unmet needs.
