Women for DeSales


Marla Wolfinger, Class of 2016


The Details

Women for DeSales works in collaboration with the University Advancement office.

The group will be comprised of women who individually commit to give $1,000 or more annually to the fund. Two meetings will be held every year. During one of the annual meetings, the group will convene to secure participants and commitments; learn about the impact of their giving and begin exploring new or recurring need. At the other meeting, participants will meet to collectively determine where to direct funds. That meeting will include presentations from various potential beneficiaries. Both meetings will serve as opportunities for fellowship, community building, and networking.

The Joy
