Our Community Partnership

Women's Impact partners with local non-profit organizations to identify, not duplicate, their services. Our goal is to help women fulfill individual needs that cannot be met through other community programs.

Women's Impact Foundation is a “New Generation Foundation.” Using the resources of Impact Foundation, a 501(c)3, Women's Impact makes sure your donations are spent on people, not paperwork.

“Sometimes to start GIVING big things to the world, we need to RECEIVE a little help.” – Chris Linnares, Founder
