About Us

Throughout the nation, individuals – especially women – are creating “Giving Circles” to share a collaborative process of hands-on philanthropy.

Women for Social Innovation is a giving circle with a mission to provide philanthropic investments to emerging social innovators whose ideas hold promise to improve life for women, girls, and families in the Greater Philadelphia area.  Women for Social Innovation is a donor advised fund through The Philadelphia Foundation.  The core membership of Women for Social Innovation reflects a diversity of ages, prior philanthropic experience, professional backgrounds, and interests.

Women for Social Innovation fulfills its mission by awarding the Turning Point Prize.
