Federation of Houston Professional Women

FHPW unites women from diverse member organizations to enrich relationships and expand leadership, partnership, and educational opportunities.

An extension of business women's current member organizations, FHPW provides stewardship, mentorship, and partnerships in the Greater Houston and surrounding communities to connect and transform the networking experience by recognizing women of excellence and building pathways to help members achieve their aspirations.

Through its Endowment Fund the Federation has provided over $42,000 in educational scholarships at the C.T. Bauer College of Business, University of Houston. It is this giving back that helps to ensure there will be a next generation of Houston professional women.

FHPW made an initial donation of $10,000 to begin an endowment fund for a Houston Community College Scholarship through the HCC Foundation. We need to finish funding the endowment and need your help to reach the goal of an additional $15,000 to complete it, then it will forever provide a scholarship to a woman at HCC on behalf of the Federation.  Go here to make a donation, which is tax deductible, and can be made from a business or individual.  Under 'Donation, click 'other' and type in the amount. Under 'designation, click other and type FHPW Endowment Fund, then type in payment details, donor info and submit.  Thank you!
