Welcome to Women Sharing Hope, a 501(C)3 non-profit organization made up of local women who organize and hosts fundraising events benefiting local charities nominated and chosen by its members.
Women Sharing Hope, or WSH, is operated entirely by volunteers. 100% of the net proceeds are donated directly back to local women and children of Whatcom County in need.
At a time when many worthwhile charities are struggling to operate with increased demands, Women Sharing Hope helps fulfill important needs within Whatcom County. WSH events are managed and operated by members, effectively minimizing expenses to ensure the highest percent of event proceeds are donated.
Women Sharing Hope additionally operates a "Community Fund" using membership dues and a portion of event proceeds to fund individual emergency needs and requests for help.
