Collective Commitments & Women for Women. Also Aging 2.0 in 2018

Collective Commitments is undertaking a fundraising campaign to support a community of enrollees in a ‘Women for Women’ class cohort in early 2018. These are women who have been displaced due to war. Most are refugees in near-by countries. Please view this video to learn about the program.Also see our About Us page to learn more about other efforts we have planned in 2018.




COLLECTIVE COMMITMENTS was launched in 2017. It’s intent is to find ways it can help “change the world.”

As a social enterprise club, Collective Commitments, provides a mechanism for its participants to operate in a team setting to “do good” and experience the payback for all when kindness is at the heart of the matter.

This opportunity to serve is made possible by a partnership forged with Women for Women International. The founder of that organization, Zainab Salbi, spoke at the Women’s International Summit in early May 2017. Meeting Zainab and Laurie Adams, the current CEO of Women for Women International, was a life-altering event for Pat Pinto, the founder of Collective Commitments.

It truly felt like the Universe had spoken.

Our community is comprised of individual donors who are leaders in their own communities and businesses which are also committed to "doing good while doing well." Each Collective Commitment's participant has donated to our Women for Women fundraising campaign. Collective Commitment participants experience being part of a whose mission is to make a difference in the lives of 25 women who are survivors of war. This goal can be realized by us raising $25,000.
