About Us

Founding WPIG members in 2008 at the 1st Annual Fundraiser: WPIG Out for Charity!

Women’s Philanthropic Investment Group (WPIG) of Seattle was founded in January 2008 by a group of women who wanted to give back to the community, both financially and through volunteering; invest in the future; and educate themselves.  Our mission is to help women and children in need move toward self-sufficiency and stability through advocacy, outreach and charitable giving.

Each year, WPIG nominates local or international charities that align with our mission and subsequently chooses an annual charity to support through fundraising efforts, volunteering, advocacy, member dues, and our annual event. Annual event earnings are split 50/50 between our current beneficiary and future WPIG charity partners.

One unique component of WPIG is our investment strategy. Throughout the year, we educate ourselves about finance and investing through guest speakers, written materials, and other opportunities. In turn, we maintain a stock portfolio with stocks hand-picked by the group. Earnings are used to support WPIG’s operations and our charity partners.

WPIG of Seattle is a 501(c)(3) exempt organization, is incorporated in the State of Washington as a non-profit organization, and is registered with the Washington Secretary of State as a Charitable Solicitations Fund.

Our members represent a talented group of women with varying educational and professional backgrounds. We utilize these talents and skills to fuel our passion for helping others.
