WHF Foundation 20th Anniversary: Celebrating 2017
The Year of Service and Volunteerism
The Women in Housing & Finance Foundation celebrated 20 years of supporting women and families through financial literacy, transition housing assistance, economic empowerment and academic scholarships throughout 2017. All year long, the Foundation held a series of special events, recognizing the nonprofits supported by its Partnership Grants Programs as well as its partner associations -- Operation HOPE and Trinity Washington University.

"We wanted to showcase our partners and grant recipients during this year of celebration," said Mary Martha Fortney, WHF Foundation President. "It is their programs that really make a difference in the lives of low-income or other at-risk women and families," she added.

Through the commitment of WHF members who volunteer their time and talents as well as members and organizations which make significant financial contributions to support its mission, for over two decades the Foundation has contributed more than $600,000 to local organizations through grants. In addition, the Foundation conducted financial literacy sessions and provided $21,000 in scholarship grants to Trinity Washington University.

2017, the Year of Service and Volunteerism was filled with volunteer events celebrating the Foundation's partners.
