GivingDo you care about women’s issues? Have there been women in your life for whom you are grateful?
Your gifts to The Center will invest in a better life and future for women in our community! Your gifts can also honor the women in your life who have been there for you.
Only about 11% of The Center’s funding comes from foundations. The bulk of support comes from individual and corporate gifts. Our budget is $107,000 and we make every dollar go a LONG way.
We invite you to join our community of support! You can do so as a smaller donor, as a SHERO, by making a larger gift or by including us in your planned giving.
Keep us going and growing, and invite others to join you! Here’s how…
Those who give at a level of $1000 or more. Annual goal of $15,000.
One way to do this is through planned giving…
Do you have a life insurance policy you no longer need? Are you finalizing your will? Do you have stocks to sell? Through bequests and deferred giving, you can reach your giving goal and help us grow! Please contact us for suggestions and to request a form on which to state your intent to make a planned gift to the women’s center. We cannot render legal or tax advice, but more information on different types of planned gifts, visit www.EpiscopalGifts.org. Please consult your attorney or financial advisor for further assistance.
SHEROs donate at least $1/day that we are open, averaging $20/month or $240 annually. Goal of 250 SHEROS which will then be 55% of our income.
Those who give 2-4 SHERO gifts are SUPER SHEROs.
Gifts under $240 with a goal of $10,000 each year. Every dollar matters!
Our Board is the Development Committee.
Each Board meeting begins with a 1 hour hands-on task or planning session related to fundraising, followed by a 90 minute business meeting. We have 100% participation from the Board. They also each recruit new SHEROs, cultivating relationships with our larger donors, and nurture relationships with ongoing supporters.
With your help, our development plan will lead us to being self sufficient and assure our long term sustainability.
As a small non-profit with a big and growing mission, we depend on ALL our donors! EVERY gift has been important. It is our donors that make this work possible.
Thank you to these businesses and churches:
In addition to ongoing support from the Daughters of Wisdom and Sisters of Charity, we have received funding from the following Foundations.
