Women Helping Women Where It Counts

Frederick Business & Professional Women is a non-partisan, non-sectarian, membership-supported organization whose goals are to achieve specific gains for women, such as equal rights under the law, pay equity, gender equality, and equitable treatment in insurance and pension plans, among others. A multifaceted organization, BPW strives to serve the needs of its members and their community through various programs and projects.

Frederick BPW strives to award scholarships annually.
