Our Beginning

Women’s Philanthropic Investment Group (WPIG) was founded in January 2008 by a group of women who wanted to give back to the community both financially and physically, invest in the future and educate themselves. WPIG of Seattle is comprised of a talented group of women. Their varying education and interests create a unique blend that fuels a passion for helping others. 

 

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”

— Margaret Mead

 

Our group meets monthly to discuss our annual charity, quarterly volunteer opportunities, and collect dues. WPIG starts the year off by presenting charities that align with our mission. The group designates one charity as our WPIG annual beneficiary. Our annual beneficiary, if local, receives volunteer time in addition to philanthropic donations. Our annual event earnings are split 50/50 between our current beneficiary and future WPIG charities.
