Women's Philanthropic Leadership Circle
Together we are more than the sum of our parts.
While every woman is powerful in her own right, women working together can be an even greater force for change—in their workplaces, in their communities, and in the world.
Founded in 2002, the Women’s Philanthropic Leadership Circle (WPLC) was created to engage interest in philanthropy and channel it into initiatives that support women’s leadership. Our mission is to create a welcoming circle of women that combines its resources to support and develop women leaders and philanthropists through the College of Education and Human Development.
How the Circle Works
The Circle uses its financial resources to provide educational scholarships, research grants, and professional development opportunities and to raise the visibility of women leaders in education and human development. Members decide annually, as a group, where to direct the donated funds within the college.
We invite you to be a part of the Circle as we inspire women, support achievement, and foster leadership.

- Connect with a community of women to make a difference for CEHD graduate students and faculty
- Participate in informative educational programs about philanthropy and financial planning, women's leadership
- Create a living and permanent legacy
- Celebrate the impact of your philanthropy with others
