Impactful, an event by the Women’s Fund, 2023

What to expect

Hear directly from local nonprofits—Women’s Fund grantees—about how they’re serving women and girls. Additionally, we will present the Nancy Armbrust Impact Award.

In 2024, we are excited to announce the new name and logo for this event. Previously known as “Backstage with the Women’s Fund”, the event will now simply be “Impactful, an event by the Women’s Fund.” Over the years we have come to recognize that this evening is truly about how our grantees, donors, nonprofit partners and the community as a whole are making an impact on our community. In addition, we hear annually from the Nancy Armbrust Impact Award winner, a person who creates positive impact in everything they do. Finally, this event is a wonderful opportunity to network, make connections, and celebrate the deep impact we have on each other.

Join us in March to enjoy drinks, hors d’oeuvres, and joyful connection with the impact-makers of our community!
