"Now that I'm in my 50s, a key truth has emerged, and it is simply and importantly this: The power and importance of women friends and colleagues in my life. Because when women join together through a shared passion for giving, the world will change for the better."
-Tricia Raikes, Co-founder of the Raikes Family Foundation
Women Investing in Nebraska (WIN) is a collective giving group operating in partnership with the University of Nebraska Foundation and the UNF Charitable Gift Fund to support women philanthropists through education, engagement and empowerment.
The UNF Charitable Gift Fund, an affiliate of the University of Nebraska Foundation, was established in 2003 to provide University of Nebraska alumni and friends more options to meet their philanthropic goals.
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world.
Indeed it's the only thing that ever has."
