About Roanoke Women’s Foundation (RWF)
The RWF was established because it is obvious that women are more fascinated than ever in philanthropy and want to have a higher voice in where and how their efforts are spent. The RWF is open to females of all income levels who have an attention in aggregating smaller gifts in purchase to make significant effect grants to worthy companies in the community.
The RWF has been recognized to deliver women an opportunity to become leaders in charitable giving by providing women a vehicle for collaborative giving in reaction to our communities' many needs.
Since giving its first three grants — totaling $138,000 — in 2005, the foundation, a component fund of Foundation for Roanoke Valley, has provided $2.1 million to 39 companies.
