TRANSFORMATION IS PART OF OUR PROMISE. When you become a member of WA Women’s Foundation, you join hundreds of other smart, galvanized women who are focused on collective impact and lasting change. By bringing together women with diverse life experiences, individual members are changed by new ideas and by each other. We challenge each other to think beyond our current viewpoints, sharing knowledge, expanding our skills, and funding community-based solutions.

WA Women’s Foundation welcomes all community support. You don’t have to be a member to invest in our collective work and be a part of the transformation. Amplify your individual giving today!Contribute
YOUR MEMBERSHIP TRANSFORMS COMMUNITIES
Every member of WA Women’s Foundation makes an annual tax-deductible contribution of $2,500. The majority of this amount is directly applied to our grant making; all of it powers the transformative work we influence in each other and in communities across the state.
Anytime! We welcome new members throughout the year.
When you join WA Women’s Foundation, you can tailor your involvement based on your schedule and priorities. At a minimum, we ask that you make a $2,500 annual contribution to invest in our collective learning and grant making. We also ask that you cast your vote for the Pooled Fund Grant each May, so that we may reveal who our new grantees will be at our Grant Award Celebration in June.
WA Women’s Foundation encourages and appreciates matching gifts. Cash gifts received from organizations or corporations to match gifts or volunteer time will be credited to the organization or corporation, with soft credit to the individual donor’s record. Unless explicitly prohibited by the matching organization or corporation, these funds will be allocated to the same purpose as the individual donor’s gift. Please see our Gift Acceptance Policy for more details.
No! We allow members who notify us between January 1 and June 15 to set up a recurring monthly payment schedule. An upfront contribution of $1,000 will be requested before starting monthly recurring payments. The monthly contributions amount will be determined according to the remainder of months left in the calendar year, but will range between $150 a month to $250 a month. Please refer to the Procedure for Recurring Payments document here for more information.
If you joined the Foundation between January and June, you will be asked to renew in April of each year. If you joined between July and December, you will be asked to renew annually in October. The Foundation mails and emails your renewal forms and reminders.
Yes. In addition to your $2,500 annual contribution, you are welcome to make additional contributions to the Pooled Grant Fund. However, during the annual voting process, each member receives one vote, regardless of the amount contributed.
Thank you for your investment in our mission! We welcome everyone to magnify their individual gift through the power of our collective giving model. With a contribution to our Annual Fund, Pooled Fund, or Colleen S. Willoughby Endowment, you too can become part of the transformation. You may give via credit card, check, stock, and/or matching gifts. To do so, please go to our Contribute page.
