Alliance of Women Philanthropists

Logo for the Alliance of Women Philanthropists


Through the power of collaborative funding, the Alliance of Women Philanthropists inspires and empowers women to improve our community by investing in the mission of Loyola Marymount University.


The Alliance of Women Philanthropists is made up of donors, leaders and decision-makers. It is a community of influencers with unique and powerful voices, making an impact and shaping the future of the university. AWP gathers throughout the year to collaborate with LMU's administration, engage with like-minded women and support the university individually while also determining how to distribute a yearly, collective pool of funds to the university's programs, services and scholarships.

Our Impact

The Alliance of Women Philanthropists makes an impact on the LMU community, through programs and scholarships for students.
