About our group

Leadership
Women Inspiring Philanthropy is a community of women that seeks to transform lives in Arlington, Texas through high-impact and life-long giving. Our members combine $1,000 annual donations to fund large grants, which are awarded in June of each year to local organizations.

In the beginning, a group of six women met for lunch to discuss the idea of pooling our giving to make a bigger impact. We agreed that our giving circle had to meet three criteria: to make an impact, to contribute to a family legacy, and to have fun in the process. For the next year we met with advisors to lay the ground work, including a name that reflected our mission, Women INSPIRING Philanthropy. We wanted to inspire ourselves, each other, other women, and the community as a whole, to give back, invest, be engaged, and reap the rewards. All while learning, making new friends, and again, having fun. The first thing we learned was that it was not going to be as easy as we had thought. It involved many meetings to be sure our mission connected with the needs of our community, that our grant guidelines were reasonable and complete, and that each member would be proud of the group decision. To date we have grown to over 100 women and we uphold our founding principles.
