This year the Women's Fund was able to give $357,000 in grants to these amazing organizations.  The membership tentatively plans to celebrate the grantees and our record setting grant season with the new grant cycle kickoff in the Fall. The RSF Women’s Fund has collectively granted to our community more than $4 million in it’s 16 year history. We look forward to celebrating the success of our grantees along with the continued vision of our original members and founder, Gayle Gillies Mize. Gayle’s legacy is one we are committed to growing for many years to come.
