Women have been and continue to be an integral part of Capital Health’s success as the region’s leading healthcare resource. Capital Women in Philanthropy (CWP) invites you to join our network of caring women who share a deep commitment to the health and well-being of family, friends and community.
CWP members represent a diverse group of women in the communities we serve as well as Capital Health physicians, nurses and other health care professionals throughout our health care system. Membership encourages women’s active involvement in the life of our dynamic institution. Together, we can have a significant impact on Capital Health’s role as a valued resource, providing innovative, compassionate, high quality care to all who might benefit.
Capital Women in Philanthropy welcomes your participation with a gift at any level to help ensure that Capital Health’s exceptional physicians, nurses and staff continue providing the highest standard of care.
Participation in CWP is renewable on an annual basis. Members who make yearly gifts of $250 or more are invited to take part in the selection process for the annual Grant Program.

Since Capital Women in Philanthropy began in 2007, members have collectively contributed over $600,000 to advance patient care, enhance programs and expand community outreach efforts through CWP’s Annual Grant Program. The annual Grant Program, a major initiative of Capital Women in Philanthropy, provides vital funding to enhance Capital Health’s existing programs and services, and to seed new initiatives.
Every spring, CWP members and guests gather for the Circle of Care Reception. This special evening gives our grant recipients an opportunity to share the projects that are funded through the Grant Program. These informative presentations highlight the impact of our collective support on improving quality of life for patients, their families and caregivers.
The generous spirit of our community becomes more integral to our mission of bringing leading-edge care and compassionate programs to patients, their families, and our community.
