As residents of Louisiana and Texas pray for the best in the midst of more tropical storms, one organization is in on the ground, ensuring BIPOC women get the help they so desperately need. The Women’s Foundation of the South launched as a philanthropic entity just months before the Gulf was battered by Hurricane Ida, now the female-led organization is in place to help pick up the pieces.
WFS is a 501(c)3 organization for women and girls of color in the South, and led by the same, founded on the principle that solutions are often held by those closest to the problem. WFS raises funds for active programs, services, and resources for women and girls of color and their families to stimulate building health, wealth, and power, and will serve women of color in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia.
