Emerging Philanthropists

WPA’s Emerging Philanthropists (“EPs”) are a group of young professional New Yorkers committed to supporting the work of WPA. Through their investment, the EPs become critical partners to women as they continue their education, achieve sobriety, find stable housing and employment, and reunite with their children.

Meet our EPs!

Becoming an EP: 

Through attendance at regular meetings, the responsibility of leadership positions, the planning of events, and the cultivation of community partnerships, the Emerging Philanthropists help WPA raise the awareness and funds necessary to ensure brighter futures for criminal justice-involved women, their families, and our community.
