Attaining self-sufficiency and security
Women Give San Diego takes the position that families and communities flourish when women and girls thrive as fully contributing members of the community. Believing that investing in women as solution builders and leaders accelerates a shift toward equity and justice and yields exponential returns.
Women Give San Diego, a Donor Circle of the Women’s Foundation of California, funds non-profit organizations in San Diego County that offer underserved women and girls the opportunity to become fully engaged in the prosperity of their local communities as well as advocating for public awareness of women’s economic issues and policy change at the local and state level.
Since its inception in September 2009 by founders June Tuttleman, Gayle Tauber and Linda Katz, Women Give San Diego has collectively granted $198,000 to nine partners. In their third grant cycle, $85,000 was proudly awarded to three fully vetted non-profits – Southwestern College Microenterprise Family Childcare Program, Casa Cornelia Law Center and Women’s Resource Center.
The demographic is richly unique and members come from a wide array of fields and industries. To capture the wisdom and experiences of each generation, the Jan Tuttleman Mentorship Program allows for the exchange of ideas and an opportunity for relationship building between the generations.
