Help us raise $5,000 in three days!!
Empowered Women International (EWI) has received $2,000 in matching grants of $1,000 each, one from Mason Hirst Foundation Fund, and another one, anonymously.
The grants are for Spring2ACTion, an innovative online community-wide fundraising event on May 5th, 6th and 7th.
When you make a donation to Empowered Women International of any size on May 5th, 6th, and 7th, your donation will be doubled up to $2,000, and will help us increase our chances of winning even more money and prizes! The nonprofit with the most unique donors will win an additional $5,000.
We need you in order to make this campaign a success! Our goal is to raise $5,000 on May 5th, 6th and 7th to support entrepreneurship, job creation and leadership development for 15 immigrant, refugee and low-income women who will be attending our Entrepreneur Training for Success program this fall in Alexandria, VA.
Anyone who contributes to Empowered Women International between May 5th and May 7th will be entered into a raffle. One winner will be picked on May 8th to win this gorgeous hand sewn pink floral apron by our artist entrepreneur, Velma Crawford.
The apron will be shipped at no cost to you to the special woman in your life. Along with the apron we will include Velma’s story about her passion to create aprons inspired by the love and strength of her grandmother, Mattie.
Don’t miss the opportunity to support Empowered Women International with a tax-deductible gift, win this gorgeous apron, and open doors to possibilities for women.
Please visit www.Spring2ACTion.org, find Empowered Women International on the Leaderboard, and make a donation on May 5, 6 and 7. You can follow the live Leaderboard and watch our progress throughout the 3 days.
