Join Metro Atlanta Women in Business for Good

Helping women of metro Atlanta build connections while doing good for the greater community. We focus on helping each other improve our careers and enrich our personal lives, all while doing great work in our community. We come together once every quarter to network, donate, learn about nonprofits and vote on which ones to support together.


“I love the idea of people from the same community coming together to do good and seeing the power of a small donation multiplied exponentially. "No one can do everything, but everyone can do something" - Max Lucado. I'm also looking forward to meeting, learning, and supporting other professional women here in Atlanta.”

“I have always been involved with helping others and I feel it is my duty to assist others to succeed. Since college I have actively assisted community based organizations to develop capacity, train staff and seek funding sources. An effective organized philanthropic group is an excellent vehicle for me to participate in and help promote. I am honored to be selected to join.”

“It’s important to me to align with those who have the same vision of support, community, and growth. Any opportunity I get to learn or serve others is well worth making the connection. I believe this group has the opportunity to propel business women in our personal and professional life. Growing my network as a young professional is an invaluable experience that I’d like to continue to amplify, and I believe this group will surely maximize that.”

“This seems like the perfect opportunity to meet other women in business while becoming involved within the community. Something I have always wanted to be a part of - supporting non-profits and supporting other women.”

Shelley Doukas, Metro Atlanta Women in Business for Good


“I am a diehard supporter of all these women-led and especially when it comes to philanthropy. Also, as one of the leaders of a grassroots nonprofit origination serving girls in Metro Atlanta, I understand the struggles of finding funding to support our passionate work. I want to assist organizations doing the work but need some help financially.”
