Join the women of Rancho Santa Fe and support our community.

Each year, we collectively give approximately $250,000.00 in grants to non-profit organizations throughout Northern San Diego County.  If you are interested in helping us make a positive impact, please register for an upcoming event. 

“The Women’s Fund was founded as a way for members to join together in meaningful and engaging ways and to give back to the greater San Diego community.”
