Your contribution to WIL of Greater Philadelphia will help us achieve our mission of “empowering women as leaders globally.” You can direct your contribution to one of these categories:
Village Bank Donation
Every dollar you donate empowers women to become economically independent community leaders and contributors. We are opening our 13th Village Bank. You can donate in any amount. Read more about our microfinance/Village Bank efforts here. For more information about making a donation to a WIL village bank, contact Caroline Wischmann or Madeleine Champion, co-chairs of WIL’s Microfinance Committee.
Tribute Card Option
Need a gift for someone who has everything? Want to send a special type of holiday gift? For a minimum $5 donation we will send a card to honor or memorialize a person or event. These donations help fund our Village Banks.Contact Laurie Rosard for more information.
Empowerment Grants and WIL
Each year we use a competitive process to offer grants to nonprofits and NGOs whose projects are in line with WIL’s mission. Read more about our empowerment grants here. And while our operating expenses are low, these funds keep us going.
You can contribute by sending a check, or by using PayPal or a credit card right from this website. See below for more information.
