Our Live Auction

Our Live Auction is still open! You can still contribute to the WWHF by donating directly to one of our health topic areas. “Bidding” on a Donation Station item is considered a donation directly to benefit a certain program or activity at the WWHF. All amounts for Donation Station purchases are tax deductible donations to the Wisconsin Women’s Health Foundation.

Community Health Grants
These donations, combined with income from our WWHF license plate sales, support grants of up to $2,500 for local community projects impacting women’s and family health issues. Since the program’s inception, 129 grants totaling over $160,000 have been distributed to local projects and nonprofits across Wisconsin!
 
In Honor/Memory Donation
Honor a loved one with a donation in their memory or honor. A certificate is mailed in tribute of your generous gift! WWHF staff will contact you for more information about your in honor/memory of donation and tribute following the Spring Gala event.
 
Breast Cancer Prevention
Help prevent breast cancer with your donation of $100 to purchase breast self-exam models for use in rural communities by GrapeVine Program nurses! Practical tools like these are invaluable during health education sessions, allowing women to practice feeling lumps and tumors on the model so they know what to watch for at home. A $100 self-exam model can truly save a life.

Healthy Births
Support the cost of one woman completing our First Breath smoking cessation program!

Smoking is the leading modifiable risk factor for adverse birth outcomes. First Breath helps women quit smoking during and after pregnancy so each baby’s first breath can be a healthy breath. The WWHF currently works with 140 First Breath sites statewide and has served over 13,000 women since its inception.
 
Women’s Health Research

Since the program’s inception, over $400,000 has been awarded to junior faculty members conducting cutting edge women’s health research in Wisconsin!
 
Parish Nurse Scholarship
