Are there women in your life who have inspired or encouraged you? Perhaps it's your mother, a teacher or a friend who has made an unforgettable impact.
During the Mother’s Day season, you can honor those special ladies with gifts in their name to the Women’s Endowment Fund. Your gifts will support women and girls in our community forever – a fitting tribute to the SHEroes who have made a lasting difference in your own life.
If you choose, each woman you honor will receive a card telling her she’s your SHEro and letting her know of your gift (but not the amount). Donations ultimately support the Women’s Endowment Fund’s grantmaking, which to date exceeds $1.5 million to deserving nonprofit organizations. These grants improve the health and wellness, safety, and economic empowerment of women and girls in our community.
Honor your SHEroes and credit a SHEro Ambassador under the "Ambassador" tab. This campaign ends on April 30.
