Come join this inaugural interest group which is focusing on the sources and methods WAHHI uses to raise funds to support the youth awards and our WAHHI Charitable Foundation grants. Currently, there are more needs identified in the community than WAHHI has as fund capacity. We seek any woman interested in and experienced with fund development; and anyone who has an interest and passion in helping serve as outreach coordinators for various fundraising events throughout the year. Come join us!

* These groups require a fee & may have additional fees for supplies, extra field trips, meals, etc.
