Community Charity

Whatcom Women in Business supports non-profit organizations each year, donating $1,000-$5000 each year.

Every Month at the membership meetings “Charity Bucks” are collected throughout the year from members and guest. These are then pooled and donated to the chosen charity at the end of the year.  A list of needs will be requested from each charitable organization and will be distributed to our membership through out the year.
