2017 Dreambuilders Projects

LET’S BUILD SOME DREAMS!

Each year the PWF members submit their suggestions for the Dreambuilder projects from agencies in Lexington focused on supporting women.Then the Dreambuilders Committee reviews the requests, and sends a proposal to the board for approval.
 
Dreambuilders thank all of the members who took time to nominate groups for PWF to support 2017, we had a number of strong nominations to consider.

In response to concerns raised by members, Dreambuilders will be following an every other month plan of information and then in-gathering starting in March 2017. The first month the Dreambuilders announcements would focus on who the group is, what they do, how they support women in Lexington, and how PWF can support their important work.
The following month would be the ingathering.     

Dreambuilders recommended to the board and the groups listed below for 2017. Our focus will be on  gathering small item donations that have a big impact for the agency, with the option to give cash directly to the organization. All of these groups support the mission of PWF, each in their own unique way. This group includes new and familiar organizations who work tirelessly to benefit women, and our support will be a welcome addition.
