Have you ever asked yourself, “How can my one gift fight domestic violence, improve women’s health and nutritional needs, provide shelter to vulnerable girls and protect at-risk seniors with nowhere else to turn?

How can I, just one woman, change the lives of other women and girls in need?”

You can by joining women just like you, through the power of collective gifting.

Add your gift to those of other members of the Women of Vision (WOV) giving circle.
