In 1996, Patti Naughton, who was a member of the AFW Board of Directors, created the AFW Angels to support AFW initiatives. The Angels have contributed their time and talents to the mission of the Foundation, which is to ensure the Safety, Health and Economic security of every Arizona woman. To date, AFW has donated nearly $3 million to Arizona non- profits, changing well-over 2 million lives in Arizona -- change that would not have been possible without the support and service of the Angels.
The primary fundraising tool for AFW is the annual Awards Luncheon, which provides the support of the Foundation’s annual grant-making, research, and advocacy activities. Participation by the Angels makes the event such a success through members’ efforts in securing auction items and sponsorships.
AFW is looking for leaders who want to be involved, connected, and supportive of women’s issues in Arizona. If you are interested in joining the Angels or would like more information, please contact Mesha Davis at 602-532-2800, extension 6 or MDavis@azfw.org.
