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.
Join us on Tuesday, May 23, for an important conversation over breakfast. Four panelists will join us to discuss When Budget Cuts Loom - How Non-Profits Survive in an Unpredictable Climate. ... See MoreSee Less

Students came away from the powerful performance and all-day conference with an understanding of the facts about gender violence; strategies for safe intervention; and skills for fostering change and on and off campus. We're so proud to support BFC with our 2017 grant as they work to mobilize change with regard to our culture of gender violence. ... See MoreSee Less
