Your generosity is important…

In 2021, the Women’s Fund celebrates an important milestone, our 35th year. This is an opportunity to reflect, and honor, the women who have been on this journey. We are following roads they paved to make the progress we are watching, experiencing, and celebrating today.

Much has changed in 35 years. In 1986 there were 2 women senators, today there are 24. There were 2 women CEOs of Fortune 500 companies, today there are 37. Women were not allowed in several private clubs, like the Milwaukee and University Clubs and civic organizations like, Kiwanis and Rotary Clubs.

Today woman have access to educational and work opportunities that were previously unimaginable, and we are getting a seat at the table.

This arc of history provides a basis for informing how far we have come. We feel hopeful about our future because we see persistence make our voices heard…influencing attitudes, changing behavior and shifting culture.  

People like you are making a Milestone Gift of $35 for 35 months during our 35th anniversary. You know we stand at a critical moment. You can we are ushering in monumental “firsts” for women.  You know NOW is the time to lean into this work of advancing equity for women. Will you join in? 

We must continue to evolve and change society for the next 35 years. Our voices and investments are more powerful together.


Our Gratitude…
