WID short for Women in Development – This is a group of Women that wear many hats and do what is necessary behind the scenes to make the world of Philanthropy and its trails and tribulations towards financially ensuring that the organizations that take care of our communities can survive! WID is an organized association dedicated to the advancement of women in their fundraising careers and is 100% volunteer.
You see the world of fundraising that I am referring to goes beyond what “WE” consider fundraising – these are the individuals who raise hundreds of thousands – if not millions of dollars to keep amazing organizations alive AND its not so easy – That is why this is a GREAT RESOURCE of women to network with – they are seasoned professionals and IF you are just starting out or struggling with raising money for your cause – this could be an answer for you!?! www.widmercer.org
