Women Who Care Events

Women Who Care is a women’s philanthropic giving circle that pools the combined charitable resources of over 200 area women to fund projects that enhance the quality of life for women and their families in Elk County.

Along with the satisfaction of making a difference in their communities, our members also enjoy events twice a year where they gather to network, learn about community needs and award grants.

Each spring, we welcome members and guests at a social event that features an evening of friendship, entertainment, and education.

In October, our Annual Meeting rotates among various locations in Elk County. Organizations that have been chosen as final grant candidates give a brief overview of their project to the members in attendance. The members vote on their favorite projects and grants are awarded. Along with learning all about exciting programs that are benefiting our communities, members enjoy great food, great friends, and an always entertaining evening.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]
