Fund for Women

Today is #BoardMemberMonday! Every Monday during the month of July we will introduce a Founder that has joined our Board this year.

Meet: Jenn Sonson, Board Treasurer

Jenn joined FFW as a Young Founder in 2020 and has been an active member of the Finance Committee. She currently works for Raymond James Financial Services and specializes in assisting young professionals and women with wealth accumulation strategies, risk assessment and long-term financial planning.

When asked: What are you most excited about in joining the FFW Board of Trustees?

Jenn replied: I am excited about joining an organization where I can make a greater impact for the women and girls in our State, than I would or could accomplish alone. I'm looking forward to embracing my role as the Treasurer and forming new relationships with the other trustees for the greater good of our community!
