Plans are underway for our 27th Annual Luncheon on April 28, 2020, and we will be sharing more information soon.  As the largest non-profit luncheon in Tucson, the Women’s Foundation of Southern Arizona’s Annual Luncheon attracts an audience of 1,000+ attendees. For information about sponsorship opportunities, or to get a head start on reserving tables and tickets, please contact Jill Bishop at or  520-622-8886, ext. 4.

Thank you for celebrating 27 years of changing women's lives! In 2019, we awarded over $800,000 in grants that helped 63,500 women and girls increase their income and assets by nearly $5 million.
