Letter from Helen Rule - The IWF Mission Challenge Campaign

Posted by admin on 04/26/2021 4:29 pm  

Dear IWF Members,

I hope you are staying safe and healthy and that you enjoyed the virtual Cornerstone Conference last month. I certainly did.

As you may remember, at the beginning of May 2020, IWF participated in Giving Tuesday Now to raise unrestricted funds from the membership to support IWF’s transition during the pandemic. With your help, we raised over $65,000 US in one day to ensure IWF’s commitment to its mission continued seamlessly.

Building upon that success, I invite you to join the IWF 2021 Mission Challenge Campaign this May 4-18 that will raise funds for our work to advance women’s leadership and champion equality worldwide. This year, it is particularly important for us to show our support as we continue to build the IWF of the future. The pandemic taught us many things, including the ability of our global sisterhood to adapt to new ways of engaging and learning. Over the coming months, IWF will continue to evolve, incorporating the best of the physical and virtual worlds for the benefit of the membership and the mission.

Please consider participating in the IWF Mission Challenge Campaign and help us reach our goal of raising $65,000 US in two weeks.

If you'd like to give early, you can make a contribution today. Alternatively, you can contribute via check, ACH transfer, wire, or through a gift of securities.

The beautiful IWF bracelet shown below is a special gift for the first 100 donors that contribute $250 US and above. I hope these bracelets will serve as a lovely reminder of the IWF sisterhood.

As a reminder, IWF is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and donations by American tax-payers is tax-deductible as provided by U.S. law (tax ID number: 84-0919612).

If you have any questions, please contact Rachel Yost, IWF Development Director, at [email protected].

Thank you for your dedication to IWF. I am confident that with your contribution, IWF’s Mission Challenge will exceed its goal!


Helen Rule
