|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.
In Fall 2016, 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 2017 MWL Wahl Lecture, with an additional 30 donors signing-on.
GOOD NEWS: On April 21st, at the 2017 MWL Conference for Women in the Law, the MWL Foundation achieved its campaign goal by securing 102 Founding Donors. Our great thanks to everyone who helped the MWL Foundation reach its goal. It's Not Too Late: Campaign donations are still being accepted through June 30, 2017.
Become an MWL Foundation Founding Donor by making a $300 contribution during this 2016-2017 fiscal year (which runs through June 30, 2017). By making a Founding Donor contribution, you will not only receive the satisfaction of helping the MWL Foundation build a financial “foundation” from which to do its important work, but you will also receive recognition on the MWL Foundation website, as well as recognition at the 2017 MWL Annual Conference for Women in the Law on April 21st, 2017.
