Delores Barr Weaver 4Sight – A Pathway for Women 40 and Under

Sabeen, Jill, Baby and Aidee

Women 40 and Under - our region's emerging philanthropists - represent the future of WGA. Delores Barr Weaver 4Sight is an opportunity for young women who are passionate about improving the lives of women and girls in Northeast Florida to raise their voices and increase their impact through collective giving.

Over the past several years, a pilot program sponsored by WGA Co-Founder and community philanthropist Delores Barr Weaver and other generous women helped grow the 40 and under participation of WGA's total membership - and this diverse group of motivated young women has already enhanced WGA's community outreach and programming. Thanks to their feedback, we have designed a new approach to engage other like-minded young women through DBW 4Sight.

Why is WGA a perfect fit for emerging philanthropists?

Purdy & Grass

Here's what our younger philanthropists have told us is important:

  • The impact they can have on the lives of women and girls in Northeast Florida – combining their contributions with the gifts of more than 400 other women can make a real difference, more than individual donations could alone
  • The research-based strategic philanthropy model – knowing that each grant is analyzed according to structured criteria and that all members have a voice in choosing which grants are funded
  • The educational and personal development opportunities – improving leadership and collaboration skills while learning more about the communities of Northeast Florida
  • The connection to key women leaders and philanthropists – the ability to build true relationships with influential local leaders across diverse professions, age groups and neighborhoods
  • Flexible involvement – honoring time commitments at work and family life by not requiring specific volunteer commitments or time logged

"WGA embodies sustainable servant leadership. I’ve learned how to serve with my heart while using my head. In WGA there is absolutely no shortage of strategic thinking or empathy. With that culture firmly in place, you are constantly learning, engaging, and giving."

– Diana Donovan

“One of the benefits of WGA is the joy that comes from being part of a highly respected giving circle funding quality initiatives. Another perk is the relationships formed with extraordinary women of diverse backgrounds, talents, passions, and life experiences.”
