WRWF ZoomIntoPhilanthropy Sessions Announced

Introducing Wood River Women’s Foundation brand new virtual engagement tool!

With social distancing guidelines in place, the launch of WRWF ZIP Sessions provides new, virtual opportunities for members to stay engaged in our mission and to stay connected with each other. ZIP Sessions will, over time, cover a variety of topics relevant to the work of the Foundation with the purpose of further boosting our philanthropic expertise. We are thrilled to bring you this exciting new engagement tool and hope to ‘see’ you participating no matter where you are located!

ZIP Sessions: Series One launched May 5th!

Given the extraordinary conditions resulting from COVID-19, ZIP Sessions is launching with Series One: When in a Pandemic – How nonprofits are navigating through the coronavirus landscape. WRWF members will hear directly from Blaine County nonprofit leaders on the immediate state of their organizations, how they are operating, what decisions they are facing and how these difficult decisions are being made.

Here’s the line up for our Series One kick off:
