Our Fall Meeting is open to all and will take place

St. Paul's Ivy Church

Our speaker, 4th year student Sarah Hill, will talk to us about her experience as a sysems engineering student and her plans for the future as a woman in the STEM fields. Come and explore the various Interest Groups too and enjoy a light lunch.

We provided start up money and going support for Ramona's Room, which provided wigs, hats, and other head coverings free of charge to patients with hair loss due to chemotherapy. Ramona's Room is now part of Flourish, a boutique that provides all products and services to patients undergoing treatments that alter their physical appearance.

In 2013, the Philanthropy Group chose to begin a collaboration with the Women's Center at Uva. Our priemiur project was to provide funding to furnish a welcoming and quiet space, called the Breathing Room, for clients seeking services at the Women's Center.

We are eager to welcome new members, so if you are interested in joining, check out our Membership page. And you can contact me personally by phone or email.
