We Love to Spread Humankindness! 

The Women's Philanthropic Society is a lot of fun, has a sense of deep purpose and is called the "Power of the Purse."  The members established the group in 2014 with the following three goals. If this sounds like you (and you like to have fun) - JOIN US! 

    • Cultivating women as philanthropic leaders
    • Creating a new sustainable philanthropic arm of the Foundation that empowers women to raise awareness of health care concerns that touch their families and community in the Southeast Valley
    • Celebrating the impact of charitable giving that comes directly from leadership of our Women’s Society 

Over $250,000 Raised*

Together the amazing members of the Power of the Purse they have raised funds for projects that align with Dignity Health’s strategic vision for serving women and families in the community. Over $250,000 has been raised for the Children’s Dental Clinics (both Chandler and Gilbert) as well as 3D Mammography and Bone Density equipment for the Women's Center, and the very popular Refresh and Retreat Stroke Camp. In addition, important hospital bed mapping technology was funded. By the end of 2018, the Power of the Purse spread kindndess through infant bassinet cards, and gave Wendy White Boxes to bereaved women. In 2019 we have put teddy bears in the emergency department and Ben's Bells in the Intensive Care Units. In 2018, we supported purchasing the supplies to start up the Gilbert Children’s Dental Clinic. In 2019, we also funded the development of a resource guide for bereavement families in our birthing centers.

It just goes to show that when you harness the power of these amazing women, great things can happen!
