Women’s Leadership is a diverse circle engaging women as an emerging and powerful philanthropic force. This group is impacting and investing in the future of the community through education.


Women’s Leadership members have invested over $450,000 toward early childhood education, impacting the lives of the future of Dane County. As a result, Schools of Hope has provided over 70,000 K-5 and middle school students in Madison, Middleton and Sun Prairie with tutors and developed family literacy resources, increasing students’ academic skills as well as their enthusiasm for learning.
