The mission of WiNGS is to empower women, fight poverty, and impact generations. Through a tailored suite of innovative services, women build confidence and skills on their path to a new life as they start families, work toward financial security, or grow small businesses.

Show your support for women with a one-time or monthly donation to WiNGS — sponsorship opportunities are available too. Spread the word by inviting a WiNGS Ambassador to speak to your favorite club, affinity group, association, or church. You can volunteer by mentoring an aspiring entrepreneur, coaching a mom working toward financial freedom, or teaching a woman who's ready to grow her business skills.

The annual Mentors & Allies Awards Luncheon in May brings together more than 400 of Dallas' most prominent citizens, including leaders in the corporate and philanthropic communities to increase awareness, recognize achievements, and raise funds to support women and their families in need.

The Women's Enterprise Showcase, held in October, is a kinder, gentler version of Shark Tank, featuring presentations by WiNGS clients to a panel of Dallas business leaders. An audience of about 75 people have the opportunity to hear three outstanding pitches from women in the program, then the selected women give three-minute elevator speeches about their business to an audience of business leaders and executives.
