Our Mission

To motivate and unite women as leaders, donors and advocates for the University of Kentucky

Membership Terms

Leadership Council members will be asked to serve a three-year term. After serving a three-year term, members will then rotate off and may be invited by the council to return after a 12-month hiatus. An exception may be made if a council member is asked to serve as a Network or Committee Co-Chair. In this instance, the term will then be extended for three more years.


  1. Demonstrate philanthropic leadership through gifts to the University
  2. Be a leader in shaping and developing the Woman & Philanthropy Network
  3. Create a culture of service and philanthropy at the University
  4. Serve on either the Outreach or Program Committee
