Women Rock Philanthropy

Each spring, the Women’s Foundation of Collier County honors local women leaders who are an inspiration to all women seeking to make a difference through philanthropy and civic engagement.


These dynamic women have helped change our community’s face through their passion, leadership, innovation, and time and talent dedication. Net proceeds from this event help meet the needs of local at-risk women and girls through grants from the Women’s Foundation.

Honorees will be announced in the October 2021 issue of Gulfshore Life Magazine

Individual tickets are available for $275

We will celebrate our 2021 honorees at the Women Rock Philanthropy luncheon on December 3, 2021, at The Ritz-Carlton, Naples. The event combines two favorites (Women of Initiative and Power of the Purse) into one new epic celebration that recognizes women as philanthropic rock stars. Women Rock Philanthropy will be the hit of the season, and we want you to have a front-row seat! #womenrockphilanthropy
