Washington Women In Need

WWIN's vision is to assist women throughout the state, who have high hopes but low incomes, to achieve their goals for higher education and better health. We provide grants for post-secondary tuition and related academic costs, and for wellness needs that are not met by current healthcare programs. Our newest education grant program, Star Scholars, extends tuition assistance for the full four years of an undergraduate degree.

Washington Women In Need (WWIN) was founded so that women, who do not have great means, can still achieve great things. In an era of stark income inequality, and where over 460,000 women in Washington live at or below 138% of the federal poverty line, WWIN steps in to empower women with education and healthcare grants; providing them with the opportunity to change their life and the lives of their family for the better.
While more women with low-incomes are receiving healthcare under the Affordable Care Act, there are still gaps in coverage - this is especially true with dental, vision and mental health counseling. WWIN health care grants help to bridge that gap so that a woman can attain better health. WWIN's education grant recipients are determined to distance themselves from poverty, and take their families with them. In receiving a WWIN education grant, a woman is provided with significant financial relief, and the chance to change her circumstances. A WWIN Education grant provides up to $5,000/yr. to help offset the cost of tuition, books, and associated fees during her 2-4 yr. experience at the Washington State accredited college of her choice - enabling her to make the positive and life-long change she is determined to achieve.
Today more than 6,000 women have benefited from receiving a WWIN grant. With your help, we can offer more life-changing opportunities to hundreds more women and their families.
