We Love to Spread Humankindness! 

The Women's Philanthropic Society, Power of the Purse, is a membership group of leaders in the east valley who come together to ensure the important health care needs of children and families are met. Power of the Purse was established in 2014 with the following goals.

    • 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 

Over $250,000 Raised*

Together, the amazing members of the Power of the Purse 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. Other notable projects that have been funded through these philanthropic efforts include: hospital bed mapping technology, infant bassinet cards, Wendy White Boxes for bereaved families, teddy bears for children visiting the emergency department, Ben's Bells for organ donors in the ICU, supplies to start up the Gilbert Children’s Dental Clinic and the development of a resource guide for bereavement families in our birthing centers.

When you harness the power of amazing women, great things can happen!
