WHF Foundation 20 Year Celebration

The Women in Housing & Finance Foundation (WHF Foundation) has kicked off a year-long celebration of two decades supporting women and families through financial literacy, transition housing assistance, economic empowerment and academic scholarships.   Since February, the WHF Foundation has been holding special events the nonprofits supported by  the WHF Foundation’s Partnership Grants Program as well as its partner associations—Operation HOPE and Trinity Washington University. 

“We are showcasing our partners and grant recipients during this year of celebration and service,” said Mary Martha Fortney, WHF Foundation President.  “Their programs really make a difference in the lives of low-income or other at-risk women and families.  We also want to thank the many WHF members who conduct financial empowerment sessions, volunteer and assist in service projects, and help raise funds for the Foundation to support the programs.”   

Special events will be held through December of 2017, including a celebratory reception on September 28.  More information about these special events, as well as information on grant recipients is available here.
