Women Helping Girls is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization supported solely through donations and grants. WHG has received recognition and grants from several prestigious local organizations and grantors, including the United Way. We are very thankful for their generosity and support.

The work that goes into the application and reporting process is meticulous and time-consuming, and we owe a debt of gratitude to our devoted staff and volunteers who are taking on this challenge.


In December WHG joined with the People's Pottery to present a Wine and Cheese Open House, with 20% of the proceeds of sales going to WHG.

We also thank Excellus BlueCross Blue Shield and the Western New York Flash (Rochester's professional women's soccer team) for showcasing WHG during their first home game on June 3rd. One dollar of every ticket sold came to WHG.
