Welcome! We are so glad you are here. Thank you for your interest in our group.




Ross Valley Women’s League (RVWL) is a group of dedicated women from across Marin County that has a legacy of fundraising since 1965. The group is devoted to the financial support of Adopt A Family of Marin, a non-profit organization committed to preventing homelessness and providing stability for families in crisis. 


In 2020 Ross Valley Women’s League’s Active and Associate Members are proud to be celebrating RVWL’s 55th year.

Since 1997, RVWL has raised over $5.8 Million for Adopt A Family of Marin.  

​Adopt A Family of Marin, a 501(c)(3) organization, provides stability for families in crisis. As an integral part of the circle of protection for struggling families in the Marin community, AAF’s mission and actions focus on preventing homelessness among families in Marin County. For additional information, please visit adoptafamily.org




Every year, in order to increase the operational resources of Adopt A Family of Marin, RVWL focuses on the following: 

  • Sponsorships: RVWL works tirelessly to increase funds raised, by growing individual donor support and securing long-term corporate and business commitments

  • Membership: RVWL reaches out thoughtfully to potential new members, and provides an environment that encourages its members to take leadership positions and to support RVWL’s mission

  • Community Impact: RVWL strives to make a difference in the community by tackling some of its biggest challenges


  • Community Relations: RVWL tells its story and that of Adopt a Family through its marketing and media outreach and encourages others to support our mission




RVWL organizes fundraising events for Adopt a Family Marin throughout the year, including a major annual fundraising Gala, which is supported by donor underwriting, ticket sales, live and silent auctions, and a raffle. Proceeds from the event are given to Adopt a Family.

RVWL and AAF operate under a long-term Memorandum of Understanding. Under the terms of the agreement, which is reviewed every five years, RVWL is committed to supporting AAF exclusively. The terms of the partnership between the two organizations has just been renewed for 2020-2025.
