Our Mission:

The Women's Philanthropy Institute inspires, educates and encourages women to effect change in the world through philanthropy.


Throughout history, women have demonstrated their philanthropic spirit. They have established schools, founded hospitals, and sheltered the homeless, never questioning their ability to make a difference in the world through their donations of time and talent.

Today woman are poised to discover their capacity to transform the world through financial giving. Yet sometimes women hold back in their giving because of barriers arising from their socialization. The Women's Philanthropy Institute was formed to help women gain confidence in their capabilities as financial donors and to inspire women to fulfill their philanthropic potential.

WPI is not a funding organization. Rather, it is an educational resource for women and for those who wish to encourage women as donors.
