Every Member Campaign 2014-2015
As members of Executive Women of the Palm Beaches, our mission is “Empowering Women to Succeed and Lead.” Each of us has the opportunity to Empower Women in our community through our contributions to the Every Member Campaign.
The Every Member Campaign is a significant complement to our Women In Leadership Awards event and provides additional funding to accomplish its objectives. This year we want to achieve 100% participation from our more than 200 members. No gift is “too small” – we want all of our members to support our charitable work.
The EWPB Foundation awards scholarships to women to assist them in obtaining a college degree. To date, the Foundation has awarded more than $400,000 in scholarships and assisted over 150 women in attaining their goal of a college degree and a solid career.
The Foundation’s other major initiative, the Lois Kwasman Program for Community Impact, provides financial support to local agencies that work with girls and young women ages 11-22. Each year, the Foundation awards $10,000 to two local programs. EWPBF has supported programs at the Boys and Girls Club, Vita Nova, Girls on the Run and Nelle Smith Residence for Girls, among others.
Take a moment and reflect on that special person who helped you during your college studies or career path. Remember how that act of kindness made you feel empowered, strong and special. By supporting the EWPBF Every Member Campaign you can help a woman or girl feel just as special!
This year the Every Member Campaign will run year-around and continue through June 2015. We will officially kick-off the campaign at the Opening Season Dinner on September 18th, but members may begin making donations now. Pledge cards will also be available at the dinner. All members whose donations are received by October 30th will be entered into a special drawing. Winners will be announced in November.
As in previous years, the WILA Signature Sponsorship qualifies as your EMC contribution, as long as the donation is a personal gift. The Signature Sponsorship is $300.00; it includes a ticket to the WILA luncheon and an invitation to the Sponsor Reception, along with recognition in the WILA program.
As indicated on the EMC pledge card, donations can be made by check, credit card or ACH payments. Gifts of stock may also be given by contacting the EWPB office.
Can we count on you? Help EWPBF Empower Women with Every Member’s Gift!
EWPB was founded to support and advance women in business and community leadership.
