At a time when many worthwhile charities are struggling to operate with diminished funds and increased demands, Women Sharing Hope is a much-needed local volunteer organization that has stepped up to fill the need in Whatcom County.
Women Sharing Hope hosts two fund-raising events each year, benefiting three local charities nominated and chosen by its members. In addition, Women Sharing Hope uses its “Community Fund”, funded by members dues and a small portion of event proceeds, to fund individual requests for help.
Women Sharing Hope is operated entirely by volunteers, therefore 100% of net event proceeds are donated directly to local women and children. Women Sharing Hope events are managed and operated by members, effectively keeping expenses down, so that a significant percent of event proceeds are donated.
