About the Foundation
Women in Northfield Giving Support (WINGS) is a 100 percent volunteer-led grassroots organization committed to improving the lives of local women and youth. WINGS took flight in 2000 when a small group of visionary women came together to pool their resources and make the most of their giving.
Thanks to the generosity of its members, the earnings from the WINGS endowment fund provide for annual grants to nonprofit organizations that contribute to the health, safety, education, socialization, artistic growth and economic stability of the community.
How WINGS Makes a Difference
