Project W Raises Additional Funds to Assist Delaware County Nonprofits During Pandemic

Over $28,000 raised in 10 days


APRIL 27, 2020, SPRINGFIELD, PA – Project W, a women-only giving circle, has raised $28,710 in ten days to assist seven Delaware County nonprofit organizations in coping with increased needs during the COVID-19 pandemic.  

Recognizing organizations that had applied for Project W grants in the past but did not receive funding and are increasingly vulnerable, members rallied to make monetary and in-kind donations to those with diminished funding and increased demand.  

Project W members have proudly allocated their donations to the following Delaware County nonprofit organizations:

  • Family and Community Service of Delaware Country for food pantry purchases
  • Domestic Abuse Project to offset revenue loss from Nana’s Attic 
  • Family Promise of Delaware County for shelter necessities
  • Community Action Agency of Delaware County for shelter operations
  • Senior Community Services for food and pilot programs
  • Family Support Line for TeleMental Health Training
  • Community YMCA of Delaware Country to help reopen the facilities 

    “One of the benefits of a giving circle is the ability to collectively make an impact. For our membership to come together in a short period of time, identify acute needs and make a significant contribution to address them is what Project W is all about” remarked Michelle Smith, Co-chair of the Project W Outreach Committee.  


Project W is Giving Circle made up of 100 women that harnesses the power of collective giving.  Project W is committed to enhancing and improving the quality of life for women in Delaware County.  The fund is fiscally sponsored by The Community’s Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization based in Springfield, PA.
