High Water Women
In 2005, a group of senior women in hedge funds and financial services founded High Water Women to give back to their communities. Since then, through on-the-ground volunteering, we have pursued and achieved our mission of economic empowerment of women and low income youth through programs in financial literacy, an annual backpack drive and pioneering programs in impact investing and financial inclusion.
- Our Financial Literacy, Impact Investing, Backpack, and Secret Santa programs have impacted thousands of people.
- Our Muriel Seibert Financial Literacy program has served over 11,000 in the greater New York City area and helped pave the way for financial independence for youth, immigrants and young adults in our community.
Along our 17 year journey, multitudes of women in finance have also met lifelong friends and mentors, laughed, weathered a few storms and most of all been inspired by the women we’ve worked with and served. We are proud of the work we’ve accomplished in an organization with a maximum of two full time staff! And none of this would have happened without your countless hours of volunteering and generous support.
As we look ahead there is so much more to accomplish. Rather than try to go it alone, we determined that our programs will continue to scale and provide even greater impact at other organizations that have the resources to achieve our shared mission. While this was a very hard decision for the Board, we believe that it is in the best interest of the community we serve, as well as our sponsors and volunteers, to be able to continue the work rather than risk having to close our doors and end the programs we’ve all worked so hard to make successful.
We are eternally grateful to Portfolios with Purpose for the time and effort you’ve spent working with us on this solution. Thank you for being an important part of the High Water Women Foundation over the years. We are so grateful to all our volunteers, donors and supporters for making these programs possible. We are very proud of all that we have accomplished together since 2005 and truly value you and your commitment to our programs.
