In 2007, twelve altruistic women sought to combine their philanthropic efforts to make a difference in our community. Today, EWF has 200 like-minded members who have given more than $850,000 to local nonprofits that Empower Women and Families.


Collectively, we Empower Women and Families! EWF provides financial grants, hosts enriching educational forums and engages members through informational meetings and social gatherings.


Throughout the Erie community.


All year long, we are involving members through in-person (large and small) events and online activities to fulfill our mission for philanthropy. The amount of participation by members is an individual choice; there is no requirement of time.


For a purposeful giving and collective impact!
To demonstrate our shared values.
To express the power in numbers.
To make a difference .

The Education Committee is responsible for hosting engaging, enriching and timely events for all of EWF membership. This year, we've had to pivot to host virtual education sessions, as the health and safety of our members is important to us. Our education sessions can be found below.

Women In The Workplace Pandemic's Impact on Women Domestic Violence Alliance with DA Jack Daneri

In 2020, we created the Three-Part Series on Systemic Racism to inform our membership of the local impact of this important issue. Through the three-part series, our members are able to hear from local psychologists, historians, educators and leadership of how it affects our community.
