Unprecedented. Novel. Bet you’re tired of these overused words of our time.
Challenge. Innovation. Change. These words define the success of WCW over 142 years.
This year we are changing things up. Instead of a fall Foundation fundraiser event, we are conducting a fund drive. A generous but anonymous angel has challenged us to donate specifically to the grant allocation process so that we can give every donated dollar to organizations that are in greater need of help now due to the virus crisis and all that ensued.
Our angel will match every dollar up to $10,000.
This innovative fund drive starts NOW! We have until October 30 to meet and beat the challenge. We will report progress to you weekly, and final results will be announced at the Halloween Hat and Mask Party.
Ways to make your donation:
Cash or by check payable to the Woman’s Club Foundation
Credit card or PayPal on our website at wc-wi.org
IRA distribution/shares of stock
Donations are tax deductible. Your financial advisor can explain the advantages of donating highly appreciated stock. Your gifts will be applied toward your achievements in the Martha Mitchell Society.
Help us help Milwaukee in this time of need and show our anonymous angel how much we care!
We know we can meet the challenge!
We will publicize our success so that the community will know we are Women Who Make a Difference.
What exactly is this initiative called Women Who Make A Difference? It’s an innovative and comprehensive plan to publicize our Club and to enlarge membership, a coordinated effort between our Foundation and our Marketing and Membership Committees. We will pursue all complimentary avenues in print, electronic, and broadcast media to spotlight our special Club.
More info to come; but first, be sure to make your donation toward the challenge grant!
