Members of the Wood River Women’s Foundation held a ribbon cutting for their new digs on the second floor of Zions Bank in Ketchum this past week.
“We went hoping for a small office and they offered more than we could have imagined because they believe in our organization and what it can do for the community,” said WRWF President Terri Bullock. “We’re excited to have this relationship with Zions and we hope it will be long lasting.”
The bank offered the philanthropic organization two offices, which will be used by the organization’s executive assistant Christina Bauer and for small committee meetings as the women strategize gift giving. In addition, the bank will allow the group to use its larger conference room, which can hold 35 people for big meetings.
This frees the organization from having to hold meetings in members’ homes or scurrying to find suitable space in other buildings, said Bullock.
The WRWF’s 325 members have donated more than $3 million to Blaine County nonprofits since the organization’s founding in 2005.
