Year after year, they continue to inspire generosity and change in our communities.”

The WOV Giving Club is a group of empowered donors who are dedicated to making a difference in the lives of the women and children who come through the doors of Riverview Health. Money raised for the WOV Giving Club annually is through the Women of Vision luncheon, gifts from individuals and support from the Women’s Endowment Fund. At the beginning of every year, each Riverview Health department receives the opportunity to submit a grant application for the WOV Giving Club’s consideration. In spring, voting members of the Giving Club gather to allocate grant funding.

“As Hamilton County’s health system, we are extremely dedicated to our community,” said Riverview Health CEO Dave Hyatt. “This means not only providing state-of-the-art healthcare but also leading the charge to support the health and wellbeing of our neighbors. The Riverview Health Foundation and the Women of Vision Giving Club allow us to do just that.”
