Our mission is to empower women so they can become a force for good to impact their lives, families and communities.

Through our online community, magazine, blog, and fun events, our goal is to create opportunities for women to get connected, be empowered and make an impact in the lives of others both locally and globally.


Women's Impact exists to CONNECT women who are able to help each other achieve their dreams, but may otherwise never meet. At, women can place a free online "ad" asking for assistance in any area of their lives. Other women can offer their time, talent or treasure to help that woman reach her potential.
As another service to our members, women from various professions in the community monitor the website weekly. They provide suggestions to women looking to start a small business, apply for a school loan, buy a house, pick a doctor, find childcare... you name it!
The success of Women's Impact is not measured by grand gifts given to few but by the small gifts that make a women a powerful force in her family and community.

Our goal is to empower women to create healthier and more fulfilling lives so they can become leaders of change in their families and communities.

Our Community Partnership

Women's Impact is partnering 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
