Improving the quality of life for women and girls in Waukesha County


The Women and Girls Fund of Waukesha County (WGF) seeks to aid and enrich the lives of women and girls in our community by providing financial grants that enable opportunities otherwise unavailable to them.

The WGF is building a culture of giving dedicated to the unique needs of women and girls throughout Waukesha County. We know that investing in the advancement of women leads to stronger families, more diverse, thoughtful workforces, and more robust communities. That’s why we seek out non-profit partners in Waukesha County and invest in their programs that help women become stronger, better educated, healthier and more empowered.

We are committed to being responsible stewards of each dollar donated. Guidelines established by the Board of Trustees guarantee that every grant dollar awarded is used toward the stated goal.

In addition, each year we celebrate the accomplishments of women, girls and the organizations that serve them through our Women of Distinction luncheon. As our signature fund-raising event, this program recognizes Waukesha County women who have demonstrated sustained excellence, accomplishments, and creativity through community involvement.
