Sturgeon Bay, Wis. (September 17, 2020) – The Women’s Fund invites everyone to participate in their virtual Annual Celebrate Women! event – Planning to Survive and Thrive 2020 – this fall as the annual luncheon moves to their website.
The Celebrate Women! luncheon raises funds for sustainability grants that support non-profits serving local women and girls. The Women’s Fund’s spring 2020 grant cycle responded to the pressing needs of women and girls to help them survive these exceptionally difficult times. Challenges will continue as economists see the pandemic hitting women harder.
