How to Give

Recurring Gifts

Demonstrate your ongoing support of our mission through a recurring monthly, quarterly or annual pledge. It’s convenient for you and effective for us because recurring gifts allow us to better forecast our funding. Make a monthly donation. 

Corporate Giving

We welcome the financial contributions from businesses in our community. Your investment enables us to serve women entrepreneurs in the Twin Cities. Ways you can participate include: 

  • Company match of individual donations or volunteerism 
  • Sponsor one of our fundraising events, training programs or a room at the WomenVenture office, see all our sponsorship options 
  • Host an event to benefit WomenVenture or give a portion of your event’s proceeds to WomenVenture  

Stock Transfers

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 WomenVenture, your contribution can have a greater impact than if you donated cash or the after-tax proceeds from selling stocks. According to Fidelity, when you donate stock to charity, you’ll generally take a tax deduction for the full fair market value rather than paying capital gains taxes, so your contribution and tax deduction may instantly increase over 20%.
