Who Are We?

Members of Women'sGift began as friends from the Eugene/Springfield, OR community who wanted to make a difference in the lives of women and children at risk. Knowing that a single check of $10 can be an awfully small amount in the ocean of need, the women decided that by pooling resources, their impact could be greater felt.

Although the decision was to require a minimum $10 monthly contribution, we found that most people give whatever they feel comfortable with, often far exceeding the minimum. In addition to funding, we also donate school supplies, household goods, clothing and holiday gifts. Where there is a need, we look for an opportunity to help.

In addition to our monthly meeting, we host a public Scrabble luncheon in February, with all proceeds going to a predetermined agency.
