Annual Luncheon Celebration

Our Annual Luncheon Celebration will be just that: a celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Women's and Girls' Fund! Join us April 29, 2015 at a new location: Bakersfield Country Club. New grants will be announced, and Women Defining Philanthropy will be honored. But surprises are also underway! Invitations will be mailed in late March, and table sponsorships will be offered. Please contact us with questions or to add your name to the mailing list.

Speakers Bureau

We are happy to speak with individuals, groups, nonprofits, civic groups, professional organizations, and corporations around Kern County about the Women's and Girls' Fund. Our presentations generally last 15 to 20 minutes. Please contact us to schedule a speaker.

Small Group Gatherings

Women's funds have traditionally grown with grassroots gatherings like coffees, wine-and-cheese hours, afternoon teas, small luncheons and similar intimate events. Such events are a great way to share information about the plans and potential of the Fund and welcome new members. If you are interested in hosting such an event, please contact Laura Wolfe.
