Help women and girls in our community become economically self sufficient by volunteering for the Women’s Foundation of Genesee Valley.


  • Grant-making: award money to programs that really make a difference in the lives of women and girls.
  • Girls’ Grant-making Committee: high school girls award grant money to programs that have proven successful in helping girls overcome challenges to become successful. Click here for more information.


  • Voices of Experience: assist the mentoring program to help girls realize the importance of education and economic security.
  • Purse Auction: raise money for women and girls the fun way with Gucci, Prada, Chanel and more.
  • Annual Grant Awards Luncheon: coordinate a very special event announcing the Women’s Foundation grant recipients.

Other Ways to Help

We would be happy to provide more information on the needs of women and girls in our community to your group. Ask us to provide a speaker for a program at your social club, professional organization, or religious group meeting. We can present new research on how women and their families fare economically in our seven-county region, and what can help more families to be economically self-sufficient.
