MWL Foundation: Founding Donors

Become an MWL Foundation “Founding Donor” and Support the Charitable Work of MWL

 

In order to support the charitable activities of Minnesota Women Lawyers and its efforts to advance the success of women attorneys, the MWL Foundation Board of Directors is excited to create a foundation that is as flourishing as MWL itself.  To do that, we need the support of MWL members – women and men who have contributed so much in the past and who want to continue to see the work of MWL expand and affect even more current and future women lawyers.

 

This year, the MWL Foundation Board of Directors has set a goal of raising $30,000 through Founding Donor contributions.  (One hundred donations of at least $300.)  This campaign will jumpstart and support the work of the MWL Foundation by ensuring its long-term financial stability and building a reserve of unrestricted resources to allow MWL to continue its efforts towards equality, leadership, and community. 

 

Earlier this Fall, when the MWL Foundation first reached out to MWL’s leadership for support, over 30 leaders committed to be a Founding Donor. Subsequently, the MWL Foundation Founding Donor opportunity was formerly launched at the recent MWL Wahl Lecture.  With a phenomenal response to our invitation at that event, we now have 58 Founding Donors in total.

 

Clearly, we are well on our way to our campaign goal of 100 Founding Donors, but we need your help to close the gap. By December 31, 2016, we need 42 more Founding Donors to help the Foundation reach its goal. Will you be among them?
