The endowment will provide a revenue stream for the giving circle's operations over and above the $100 included in an annual membership.
When Women for Women considers an organization for a grant, we ask about the diversity of revenue streams and fiscal sustainability. Adding another revenue stream to Women for Women operations strengthens our financial sustainability and supports long-term growth. We are leading by example.
An endowment will provide annual income for Women for Women that will afford a stable and sustainable future for the giving circle. It helps protect our finances from changes in the economy and fluctuations in membership. Additionally, it provides a giving option for members and friends to make donations at any time during the year, leave a bequest or make a memorial gift.
Our goal is to build this endowment to $250,000 over three years. Help us reach our goal.
