Celebrating Women Who Make a Difference

The Women’s Foundation of Collier County honors local women leaders who inspire and lead the way in philanthropy and civic engagement. These extraordinary women have transformed our community with their innovation, energy, and generous dedication of time and talent.

2023 Women Rock Philanthropy

The 2023 Women Rock Philanthropy Luncheon is sold out but even if you don’t have tickets, you can still bid on the fabulous auction packages

Join us in celebrating the remarkable women who are making a significant impact in Collier County.

A Look Back: 2022 Women of Initiative

In December 2022, we celebrated the Women of Initiative honorees at the Women Rock Philanthropy event, a grand celebration that combined the Women of Initiative and Power of the Purse into one epic event, recognizing women as philanthropic rock stars. The event’s net proceeds support at-risk women and girls in our community through grants from the Women’s Foundation of Collier County. #womenrockphilanthropy
