Announcements

For All WHF Members with Volunteer Interests:
 
The WHF Foundation is initiating a new volunteer practice. If you find an intriguing volunteering event with either one of our partners or somewhere else, please let us know by contacting Rosanne Richards, rosanne@whfdc.org. We will then share this volunteering opportunity with WHF members, to hopefully encourage other members to join you. (For example, getting a group together to build a house for Habitat for Humanity). By sharing and attending volunteer opportunities, WHF members can network with each other and provide goodwill to our partners and the community. The WHF Foundation hopes you will let us know when you have a volunteering opportunity so we can share it with our members.

Thank you so much for giving back to the Washington Community,
The WHF Foundation

Volunteer Opportunity: WHF Foundation Financial Empowerment Program
 
The WHF Foundation is pleased to announce its continuing financial empowerment program partnership with residents of Calvary Women's Services. The final 8-week session is scheduled as follows:
 
Session 1 – October 6 to November 24, 2015
 
Taught by WHF volunteers who received training on the FDIC Money Smart curriculum, the program helps the women gain the knowledge they need to make wise financial decisions when they leave Calvary to live independently. Each weekly session lasts 1.5 hours at Calvary, located just minutes past the National's baseball stadium. A volunteer training opportunity will be planned for early September at KL Gates. Check the website calendar for details. For questions and to volunteer, please call the WHF Foundation at 703-683-4742 or WHF Foundation President Mary Martha Fortney at 703-507-4088 (email at mmfortney@verizon.net).
