Women in Philanthropy members are friends who recognize that women, as donors, make a tremendous impact on healthcare. This impact grows exponentially when the contributions from women are united in support of Baxter Health through a collective voice.

Women in Philanthropy was created by women in support of Baxter Health while, at the same time, encouraging women as philanthropic leaders.

Community health centers must have supporters who are continually looking for new and innovative ways to generate funding in support of the health system’s mission. Women in Philanthropy is one such group. Women in Philanthropy identifies timely opportunities at Baxter Health; particularly those with an emphasis on the enrichment of women’s lives, and together chooses how to direct the group’s pooled resources.
