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.
