Join BPW in supporting those women who have given us so much by supporting the BPW/NC Wristband Fundraiser. 100% of the proceeds go to support the grant. We are currently asking NC local clubs to sell these wristbands at their events.

Show Your Support 

With your support, BPW/NC supplies women veteran professionals or business owners in North Carolina grant funding needed for training, startup capital or business related expenses. 

The grant complements the current Business and Professional Women’s (BPW) Foundation’s Joining Forces Mentoring Plus®, which already provides the tools, outreach, and capacity to engage women mentors and assist women veterans, military and veteran spouses and caregivers of wounded warriors find meaningful jobs and advance in their current careers.
