“Thank You” from the Tampa Bay BPW Foundation
The Tampa Bay BPW Foundation would like to thank you all those who participated in our 21st Annual Networking Night – our primary fundraiser for our Tampa Bay BPW Foundation. Established as a 501(c) (3) corporation in 1991, our goal was to raise money each year and build an escrow account for Scholarships.
For over 30 years, Business & Professional Women (BPW) Local Organizations in Tampa Bay have been awarding scholarships to deserving women in our community. Since 1986, we have funded over $130,000 in scholarships to women who have not only proven their scholastic ability, but have also made a contribution to our community. We are able to give them a “helping hand” that is not only financial assistance, but also our vote of confidence – that we believe in them and their success. We celebrate their accomplishments and make an investment in their future.
Our scholarship recipients come from different backgrounds and are in various stages of their lives. Many are young women just starting out – working toward their first career. Some are women who are “re-starting” their career – whether through becoming widowed or divorced or finding it necessary to “re-invent” themselves due to economic factors. No matter where they are in their lives, they share a common desire to succeed and make a better life for their families.
Please plan to attend our Tampa Bay BPW luncheon meeting in January when we award our scholarships. Please join us and share their joy. Thank you, again, for contributing to the success of these outstanding women. Your support is helping to change lives!
