Women's Philanthropy Institute Site Visit: Girls Embracing Mothers

Members of the Women's Philanthropy Institute are invited to join us for this year's first Site Visit as we take an in-depth and behind-the-scenes look at Girls Embracing Mothers (G.E.M). Our site visit will be led by Brittany Barnett, Founder and President of the organization. Brittany is an attorney, social justice advocate, and daughter of a formerly incarcerated mother. She knows first-hand the impact of mass incarceration and how devastating it can be for families and communities. Inspired by her own experience, Brittany founded G.E.M to empower women in prison and their daughters to break the cycle of incarceration and lead successful lives with vision and purpose.

About the Mary M. Jalonick Women's Philanthropy Institute

The mission of the Women’s Philanthropy Institute is to educate, inspire, and empower women to become confident and engaged donors at every stage of their philanthropic journey while connecting them with the needs of the community and the organizations addressing those needs. 

To be a part of this dynamic group of women, annual membership is $150 per person. Additionally, each member agrees to contribute a minimum of $500 to the grant pool. Please consider becoming a WPI Pacesetter with a contribution of $10,000 or more to help ensure that we can continue to grant out as much as possible to our community. Our impact is based on your generosity, so we encourage you to consider a gift beyond the required minimum. In 2020, WPI members granted $150,000 to nonprofit organizations in the greater Dallas community, underscoring the power of collective giving.

You may make your grant contribution now, or anytime prior to December 1. Grant contributions can be made via the link below or recommended through your Dallas Foundation Donor Advised Fund. We look forward to another record breaking year!
