The Wood River Women’s Foundation engages women in the power of collective giving. We are a membership organization with almost 300 women who, each year, make a commitment to the people of Blaine County. Together we direct and pool our talents and our funds in support of local nonprofit organizations, helping them to seek effective solutions to persistent problems and community challenges.

Through informed grant-making, our members expand their knowledge of the non-profits and the needs within our valley. We invest in the Wood River Valley by strengthening the social, economic, and cultural fabric of our community through philanthropy.

Our Mission: The WRWF inspires and educates women to become leaders in philanthropy and bring significant, positive change to the community by pooling and distributing its members’ resources.

Message from the President

Here’s to another 11 years of giving in the valley. We are so proud of the impact we have made in the lives of our local families in so many ways. And it’s all because of you, our members of WRWF! Thank you for continuing your support of the WRWF by investing in our community.

Joanne Wetherell
President
