WOMEN of Southwestern PA was recently awarded the Outstanding Philanthropy Organization from the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) Western Pennsylvania for 2018. WOMEN of Southwestern PA Inc., is a charitable nonprofit organization based in the South Hills, dedicated to directly supporting less fortunate women and children in Allegheny, Washington, Greene and Fayette counties.

By contributing grants of $500 to $2,500, the organization has helped numerous smaller, non-profit organizations get off the ground and grow.

To date, WOMEN of Southwestern PA has distributed almost $578,000 in grants. Each November, the group sponsors a grant recipient dinner where each organization that received a grant that year talks about how the grant was spent.

WOMEN of Southwestern PA will be honored at a luncheon on National Philanthropy Day, Nov. 15, at the Fairmont Hotel in Pittsburgh.
