Welcome New WA Women’s Members!

Each year, nearly fifty new women join the movement of women’s leadership in philanthropy at WA Women’s Foundation, contributing to our collective influence.

Building on WA Women’s core organizational value of “inclusiveness,” we want to make sure that each new member feels welcomed, connected to our mission and prepared to engage in our programs and committees whenever her schedule allows.

New Program: WA Women’s Ambassadors

In order to help new members engage with WA Women’s Foundation, the Member Engagement Committee is excited to announce the launch of our new Ambassadors Program.

WA Women’s Foundation’s Member Engagement Committee has offered to act as our inaugural Ambassadors. When a new member joins, she will be matched with an Ambassador. Over the course of that new member’s first year with WA Women’s Foundation, the Ambassador will:

  • Send welcome emails and set up phone calls to answer membership questions
  • Connect personally by inviting her to coffee or lunch to talk about engagement with WA Women’s Foundation
  • Invite her to and host her at upcoming Foundation events, including WA Women’s New Member Social in late Spring

Want To Connect With a WA Women’s Ambassador?

If you’ve joined the Foundation in the past year and are interested in being paired with an Ambassador, please contact Emily Feicht at emily@wawomensfdn.org or 206.407.2175.
