Women of Water Fundraising Efforts

Women of Water is ramping up our fundraising efforts so we can keep this awesome organization going and growing!  We received a 501c3 designation from the IRS and are now considered a non-profit organization and we can solicit tax-deductible donations. 

Currently our main source of funds is from our membership dues. Membership in WoW expired on June 30, 2015.  We hope you will renew!  Professional memberships are available for $35 and student memberships are $15.  We keep our costs as low as possible in order to allow as many people as possible to join.  Contact Rachael Peavler to renew your membership at Rachael.Peavler@mwhglobal.com.  The membership form is attached.  Thank you to everybody that has renewed in the last couple of months.

Women of Water could not operate without the help of our Sponsors! (Check out the Sponsors section on the right side of this blog to see who they are).  If you are interested in becoming involved with Women of Water, please send us an email  -- we would love to hear from you and talk about a future partnership and ways to collaborate!  (Just make sure ATTN Blog: Interested WOW Sponsor is in the subject of the email).  

Our fundraising committee would love some help.  If you are interested in fundraising please send our Funding Director, Lizel Allen, an email at lizel.allen@gmail.com.  If fundraising isn’t your thing our Activities, Online/Communication and Mentoring/Outreach committees are also in need of volunteers.

We recently teamed up with the local chapters of the Society of Women Engineers and the Women’s Transportation Seminar to submit a grant application to the Zions Bank Smart Women Grants.  Our application is to request financial assistance in executing our first joint activity, a Work/life Integration for Women workshop. We will be notified by September 30, 2015 if we are awarded the grant.

We recently set up our AmazonSmile program. If you currently shop at Amazon please consider setting us up as your charity to support.  Follow this link https://smile.amazon.com/ch/46-3024109 and sign into your Amazon account as you regularly would.  Your account should now show “Supporting: Women Of Water” in the header.  See the image below for reference.   Amazon donates 0.5% of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to our organization.
