Chicago Women in Philanthropy
(CWIP) is a community of philanthropic, corporate-giving, and nonprofit women. Our members are passionate about helping other women advance in society. Our mission is to educate and encourage philanthropy by facilitating dialogue and uncommon connections that positively impact the lives of women and girls. Every spring we honor an amazing Chicago woman with our Making A Difference Award for their service to our city. In March 2018 we will honor Grace Hou for her galvanizing spirit and dedication to making Chicago a city where all its citizens can thrive.
