We created the Giving Back Program in 2012 in order to fulfill one of the mandates of our Mission Statement.  We wanted to establish a connection to the larger community and to commit our support  to a variety of good works and worthy causes.


Over the years we have donated 100% of the proceeds from our Holiday Party Raffle. The Group chooses the recipients and they reflect a variety of interests.

Here are the organizations we have supported in the past:


2016:

28 Years and Counting...


The year was 1988. A new kind of community emerged in Long Beach as Lesbian women were invited to join together for lively discussions, socializing and planned activities. More than 25 years later, Women of 40Plus continues to provide a safe and supportive environment for everyone.


The foundation that has held our group together for all of these years has been the extraordinary founders, board, facilitators, volunteers and our loyal members and friends.


The commitment of all the women from our beginning to this recent anniversary year has ensured that this remarkable group will be here for many years to come. We toast every woman who has directly or indirectly contributed to Women of 40Plus. We remember and celebrate our friends who are no longer with us and thank everyone who continues to contribute to our success.


Please join us and become a part of our growing family.
