The Women’s Philanthropy Board relies primarily on the financial support of its members and corporate and business partners to sustain and grow its educational programs, mentoring initiatives, philanthropic impact, and operations. Historically, women have been philanthropic in giving of their time and talents. Today, women are building on this traditional humanitarian role with a capacity for independent financial giving as they acquire wealth, assume positions of leadership and combine their legacy of service to others. In 2014, WPB established a men’s auxiliary, The Phils, as a way for men to support the work and mission of WPB.
In addition to supporting the work of WPB, members and partners benefit through practicing collective philanthropy and attending networking events. Members and partners can participate in ticket presales for high profile WPB programs and can purchase parking passes for Auburn home football games.
WPB membership and partnership gifts are made through the Auburn University Foundation and are 100% tax deductible as allowed by law. Membership gifts are a part of donors’ cumulative Auburn giving and count towards the university’s overall giving recognition levels. WPB members and partners are recognized in WPB printed programs and publications.
