Women United in Philanthropy (WUIP) is a women’s giving circle. In the simplest of terms, we are a group of like-hearted women who have decided to pool our philanthropy to collectively make a large impact on the lives of women. We vote annually to award our funds to an innovative project in Bergen County, New Jersey, that helps women become economically strong and independent. It’s clear that women are responding to this new idea of collective, strategic, democratic and local philanthropy – by women and for women. Today, we are 100 strong and growing our membership every day. We invite you to join us as we change our corner of the world – one grant at a time.
Rain Date: July 13 or 14
Friends are welcome! It’s a great way to introduce them to WUIP.
We will provide an update on the changes to this year’s grant process.
Please bring your bathing suit and an appetizer to share. Dessert and beverages will be provided.
RSVP to Hanna Salvatore at firstname.lastname@example.org or 201.291.0601.
WE HOPE YOU’LL ATTEND!

“If I could give you one thought, it would be to lift someone up. Lift a stranger up--lift her up. I would ask you, mother and father, brother and sister, lovers, mother and daughter, father and son, lift someone. The very idea of lifting someone up will lift you, as well.” Maya Angelou. Let us agree that we need each other to succeed and learn to support one another. The Angelou Johnson Family
