Join Virginia Beach Women for Good

Helping women in Virginia Beach build connections, enrich our professional and personal lives while doing good for the greater community. We come together once every quarter to network, donate, learn about local nonprofits and vote on which ones to support together. Launching in the summer of 2022, VBWG members will donate $50 per quarter with the goal of raising at least $5,000 each quarter.
