2012 End of the Year Challenge

There has never been a better time to support the advancement of women and girls in Wisconsin through a tax-deductible year-end donation to the Wisconsin Women’s Network. Now through January 15, 2013, all year-end donations received will be doubled thanks to a $1-to-$1 matching grant funded by a group of long-time WWN members and supporters!

Please consider a special year-end contribution of $35, $50, $100 or even $250 to the Wisconsin Women’s Network. You may give online, via our Paypal button below, or mail back our end-of-the year donation form included with our 2012 appeal letter (at this link).

Your generous donation of any amount to the Wisconsin Women’s Network will support our work to advance the status of women and girls in Wisconsin in 2013.  This includes:

  • The Wisconsin Women’s Policy Institute, launched in March, 2012, this non-partisan program trains women to be advocates in their communities and to navigate Wisconsin’s legislative and administrative rules process in order to advance legislation to improve the lives of women and girls in Wisconsin. In 2012, the Policy Institute helped women by:
    • developing Fellows’ policy advocacy skills training Fellows in policy-based leadership,
    • providing monetary fellowships and mentoring support,
    • building Fellows’ capacity for ongoing advocacy and policy-related work.
  • WWN’s “Women on Topic” monthly Brown Bag series, which offers members and the public unique opportunities to hear the timely perspective of women leaders from a variety of fields. 2012 speakers included State Representative Chris Taylor, Writer Danielle Henderson, Sara Finger, Executive Director of the Wisconsin Alliance for Women’s Health, and artist and activist, Kelly Parks Snider.
  • Outreach to young women through innovative projects:On campus events, such as a highly successful “Feminism in the Workplace” panel. This event, co-sponsored by the UW-Madison Gender and Women’s Studies Department, provided networking opportunities and job information to young feminists. Launching in 2013: a pilot mentorship program to connect young women  to professional women mentors in their chosen career fields.
  • Promoting, editing and distributing educational publications such as the Wisconsin Elder Economic Security Index, Uncommon Lives of Common Women: The Missing Half of Wisconsin History, the 2010 Wisconsin Young Women’s Agenda, Women in Boots Marching Home: Resources and Information for Women’s Veterans, Voter Information and Resources, and more!
