Less than five percent of non-profits registered with GuideStar are recognized with a Gold Seal, the leading symbol of non-profit transparency and accountability.

The Women’s Fund is dedicated to providing current and potential donors with accurate and in-depth knowledge about the ways in we advance our vision and mission with all donations we receive.
