The MWL Foundation’s “Founding Donor” Campaign

Wednesday, December 7, 2016   (0 Comments)
Posted by: Debra Pexa

Please Consider This Opportunity for Your Year-End Giving!


Incorporated in 2014, the Minnesota Women Lawyers Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable nonprofit organization created to support the charitable activities of Minnesota Women Lawyers and its efforts to advance the success of women attorneys and strive for a just society.


Established as the MWL Foundation’s initial fundraising campaign, we are inviting 100 MWL members and allies to become MWL Foundation “Founding Donors” by donating $300 each.  Each donation will support us in reaching our initial fundraising goal of $30,000.   We invite you to be a part of this Founding Donors initiative before the end of 2016 in order to help us create a strong “foundation” for the MWL Foundation! 




About the MWL Foundation

The MWL Foundation fulfills its mission by 1) supporting and funding existing MWL projects that fit its charitable activity criteria; 2) considering additional charitable projects and services that meet MWL's mission; and 3) working to support MWL's overall long-term financial stability. 


Examples of MWL's charitable activities that may be supported by the MWL Foundation include: 


•Student to Attorney Mentor Program

• Girl Scout Law Day

•The Gender Data Project

• 2017 Conference for Women in Women in the Law

• The MWL Leadership Project

• Media Resource Initiative

• Ongoing Educational (CLE) Seminars

• The MWL Compendium

• Rosalie Wahl Leadership Lecture








About the MWL Foundation “Founding Donor” Campaign

In order to create a foundation that is as robust as MWL itself, the MWL Foundation Board of Directors recently launched its Founding Donors initiative, by inviting 100 MWL members to become Founding Donors by donating $300 each.  The initial goal is to raise $30,000.


When the MWL Foundation first reached out to MWL’s leadership for support, over 30 leaders committed to be Founding Donors. Next, we offered the Founding Donor opportunity at the recent MWL Wahl Lecture.  With a phenomenal response to our invitation at that event, we now have 58 Founding Donors in total.


Clearly, we are well on our way to our campaign goal of 100 Founding Donors, but we need your help to close the gap. By December 31, 2016, we need 42 more Founding Donors to help the Foundation reach its goal. Will you be among them?


(Donors who make a pledge today can make payment immediately, or do so any time before June 30, 2017.)


We welcome all MWL members and allies to become an MWL Foundation Founding Donor.  Please consider this very meaningful opportunity for your end-of-year giving!

The MWL Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Donations are tax-deductible as charitable contributions, as allowed by law.
