Women At Work Establishes Special Fund with Pasadena Community Foundation

On behalf of the Board of Directors, I am pleased to announce that Women At Work has established a Field of Interest Fund, to be titled the Women At Work Endowment Fund with the Pasadena Community Foundation (PCF). The purpose of the Fund is to “support organizations that help women with challenging circumstances achieve sustainable employment”. The Fund will be started with an initial donation of $26,000 from Women At Work (WAW). An ambitious goal to increase the fund to $100,000 within two years has been established by the Board. The Fund and programs supported by it, will continue the legacy of WAW established over three decades ago and continue the vision and contributions of the founders, past board and advisory members as well as thousands of donors and volunteers over the years.

The Pasadena Community Foundation will manage the WAW Endowment Fund as well as appoint the Advisory Board. The current WAW Board members will serve as the Advisory Board. The Board is working on plans to implement fundraising activities to increase the Fund.

We greatly appreciate your support over the past three decades. It is our sincere hope that you will support our new direction and work in partnership with us. Help us continue the good work of Women At Work, you may donate directly to:
