Over £8000 has been raised to support women and girls in Milton Keynes

    The longest-running networking group, Women in Enterprise have used their ever-growing network of committed members to give back and invest in the futures of aspiring women and girls across MK.

    Women in Enterprise (WIE) has been championing the vast contributions of women in business for nearly 40 years. Their commitment can be seen annually through their regular support for the Women's Fund at Milton Keynes Community Foundation (MKCF). WIE is not just a not-for-profit networking group; it's a beacon of support, empowerment, and community for women in Milton Keynes.

    The Women's Fund is a vital source of support for charities and projects dedicated to women and girls in Milton Keynes. As the main donor to the Women's Fund, aside from ad hoc contributions, WIE's commitment to this cause cannot be understated.

    Their partnership with MKCF spans many years, marked by annual fundraising donations and active collaboration in International Women's Day (IWD) celebrations in MK.

    In 2024, WIE, in partnership with NatWest and MKCF, organised an IWD event that surpassed all expectations and went on to be the largest celebration we have seen in the city. With over 400 attendees and inspiring guest speakers, the day was incredibly successful and highlighted the power of inspiring inclusion. 

    Through sponsorship and fundraising efforts, the event raised an amazing total of £4217 for the Women’s Fund. But WIE's dedication doesn't stop there. Despite being a volunteer-led organisation, they have consistently increased their annual donation, reaching £4000 in the past year alone. This achievement truly reflects the passion and commitment of every member of WIE. Their regular support for the Women's Fund perfectly captures the group’s ethos of creating opportunities and proving support for women and girls of all backgrounds.
