Women's Leadership Council

Developing women's leadership through philanthropy and engagement.

The Women's Leadership Council (WLC) in Westmoreland, Fayette and Southern Armstrong Counties unites women donors in a powerful network for change.

We offer special giving options to new members, allowing them to commit to membership over a period of time or get introduced to WLC through a unique mentorship with a current member.

New members commit to incrementally increase their Women's Leadership Council gift, building to a full $1,000 annual donation over three or five years.
Women enrolled in step-up programs are recognized as full members from year one, with access to all member benefits.
