More Than a Volunteer

Today marks the final day at our organization for Rachel, who has been our Communications and Marketing Fellow for the last year. Rachel is a volunteer through Lutheran Volunteer Corps (LVC), which places recent college graduates at non-profit organizations in cities across the United States.

It has been our pleasure to work with Rachel and to share in her creativity, energy and professionalism. She has contributed so much to the fabric of our organization and she will really be missed!

We also want to praise LVC for the fantastic program they run. Their guidance and the development they provide for volunteers is phenomenal. We are looking forward to welcoming two new volunteers at the end of the month and cannot wait to partner with them to advance the women's funding movement.

So we wish Rachel the best as she begins another year with LVC, this time in Minneapolis. We will miss her greatly!


  1. Great job this year Rachel! We will miss you.

  2. Thank you for all your hard work Rachel! Hope you enjoy yourself in Minnesota; you should check out "Drop Dead Gorgeous" if you don't know the state very well :)

  3. Part of what's wonderful about having LVC volunteers is the fresh perspective they bring to our work. Rachel, you brought such creative energy to WFN. (At every "Wednesday Wake Up" call, I'll think of you!) I'm sad to see you go but I know you'll continue to do great things in Minneapolis.

  4. Rachel you epitomize leadership You are a creative, team player who keeps contributes at all levels of work while also keeping your peers motivated and on track. It's been a pleasure to learn from you and I look forward to hearing about her future successes.

  5. Thank you so much for a great year! The WFN staff are all truly wonderful, smart and driven women (and man :)). I have learned so much this year and know that I will take so many memories with me! WFN and the entire network of women's funds are all doing such inspiring work and I am so glad that I got to be a part of it for a year!

    Keep up the blog posting everyone, I will be following the work you all are doing via Facebook (, Twitter ( and the blog!

    Thanks again!
    Rachel HK
