WRWF members each pledge to give $1,000 per year, which they may donate entirely to the Pooled Grant Fund. This Pooled Grant Fund is the focus of the WRWF annual grants process. Pooling these funds enables us to give significantly large grants, and to have a measurable positive impact on our community.
Alternatively, members may choose to donate half to the Pooled Grant Fund and the balance to be given to one or two nonprofit organizations of their choice. WRWF refers to these as Member Designated Funds because they are completely at the discretion of the individual member. While WRWF does not track these donations individually, we do know the total amount that members designate each year and that approximately 93% is given within Blaine County. When Member Designated Grants are added to the Pooled Grant Fund awards, the total impact of Wood River Women’s Foundation giving is significantly larger.
