Help Us Make A Difference Today

Women facing poverty need our help, more than ever. Make an impact with a direct donation or sign up for monthly contributions to empower women year-round.

Donate in Honor of Someone

You can also make a donation in honor of someone or in their memory. A tribute or memorial gift is a thoughtful way to celebrate a birthday or special occasion. At your request, WE can send a notecard informing your honoree of the donation. Please contact us with any questions at 619-333-0026 or info@womenempowerment.org

Checks should be made to: Women’s Empowerment International, and mailed to:
P.O. Box 501406
San Diego, CA 92150-1406

Give the Gift of Stocks, Bonds or Mutual Funds

Appreciated securities are perhaps the most cost-effective assets to use in making a gift. When you transfer ownership of a long-term holding to Women’s Empowerment, you receive a charitable deduction for the full market value and you bypass capital gains tax. 

If you would like to make a gift, please follow these instructions or contact Sarah Adams via email sarahadams@womenempowerment.org

Leave a Legacy

Through a charitable bequest, you can support the empowerment of women and change the path for their families and children for generations to come. Sample wording for you and your attorney to consider when incorporating a bequest to WE in your estate: “I give to Women’s Empowerment International, a nonprofit organization (IRS EIN #41-2172771), the sum of $_____ [or ____% of the remainder of my estate or property described herein].” Always check with your estate attorney or financial advisor for specifics and additional options.

Please contact Sarah Adams, Executive Director, at sarahadams@womenempowerment.org with any questions. 

Host an Event or Peer-to-Peer Campaign

Have fun socializing with your friends while raising funds to help women overcome poverty. Do you belong to a group that raises funds for charities or have a group of friends who would like to organize an event to benefit WE and the women we serve? Some ideas for a fundraiser include:

  • Potluck Dinner
  • Bake Sale
  • Paint & Sip 
  • Chili Cook-off
  • Game Night
  • Hike for Empowerment
  • Design and sell a t-shirt
  • Yoga Giving Circle
  • Be creative and plan an event that best suits your group!

You may also consider hosting a peer-to-peer or crowdfunding campaign by asking friends, family, colleagues, and other networks to donate toward a goal you set for your campaign. A common example is to launch a fundraiser for your birthday or request donations to your campaign in lieu of gifts for your wedding, anniversary, or baby shower. 

Please contact us at 619-333-0026 or email info@womenempowerment.org to let us know about your event or campaign. Approved events may use our logo and mission to help raise funds to benefit WE.

Join or Start a Giving Circle

Magnify your impact by bringing together a group of people with a shared passion. Have fun, learn about important issues related to women’s economic empowerment and poverty alleviation, and raise funds to support women experiencing poverty around the world. Giving circles are a way for individuals to pool their money to make a greater positive impact. WE started as a women’s giving circle committed to the vision of empowering women with the tools, access, and resources to work their way out of poverty. 

Join an existing giving circle at WE or start your own. Current circles are in the Julian and Rancho Peñasquitos areas of San Diego County, as well as in the Bay Area in CA. Contact us for giving circle ideas and a guide to starting one: 619-333-0026 or email info@womenempowerment.org
