Six women founded the Vancouver Womens Foundation
in the year 2000 to provide funding for women in need in
Clark County, Washington. The membership has since grown
to over fifty women.
The purpose of the Foundation is to help women in our community
who have immediate and acute needs that are preventing them
from attaining self-sufficiency and living lives of dignity.
We help these women by giving financial assistance.
The foundation is built on the belief that there are countless
caring women who have the means to help other women who
for reasons often beyond their control find themselves in
need of support. We believe that through this act of philanthropy
both the giver and the receiver are empowered. By pooling
our resources we have the ability to initiate change and
make a powerful impact in the lives of women in Clark County.
The Foundation has provided financial assistance to over
one thousand women.
The Vancouver Womens Foundation exists as a nonprofit
under the 501(c)3 umbrella of the Community Foundation of
