As a nonprofit organization in Minnesota, WomenVenture relies on generous gifts from individuals to ensure that women have the training, tools and financial resources they need to build profitable and sustainable businesses. Your contribution will:

  • Help women of all ages with diverse backgrounds and incomes attain economic self-sufficiency
  • Allow entrepreneurs with bright ideas to create a brighter future with a loan from WomenVenture
  • Help mobilize volunteers and professionals to train and mentor clients in all business phases to achieve success
  • Help build a more vibrant economic community.

Sustaining Gift

Demonstrate your ongoing support of our mission through a recurring monthly, multi-year or annual pledge.

Stock Transfer

A gift of stock is an easy way to help us promote our work and empower women. By donating long-term appreciated securities, including stocks, bonds, and mutual funds, directly to charity, your contribution can have a greater impact than if you donated cash or the after-tax proceeds from selling stocks. When you donate stock to charity, you’ll generally take a tax deduction for the full fair market value. And because you’re donating stock, your contribution and tax deduction may instantly increase over 20%.

Legacy Gift

A gift in your will or estate plan will create stability for the future of WomenVenture.
