Become a Partner

Join the Champions Circle

With a $10,000 gift this year, you can join the Champions Circle and extend your impact for gender and racial equity through research, community-based solutions, statewide grantmaking, and public policy.

How it Works

As a member of the Champions Circle, you’ll be invited to high-profile Women’s Foundation of Minnesota events like the annual WFMN Equity Summit and Leadership & Legacy Circle Luncheon, where experts, partners, and communities come together with a shared commitment to benefit women, families, and all Minnesotans. Transformational gifts like yours make the maximum investment in and with communities across the state to create safety and opportunity for women, girls, and gender-expansive people.

The Women’s Foundation’s future is strong because of every donor-partner who shares our vision for a world in which all women and girls can experience economic opportunity, safety, and leadership. We are grateful for Champions Circle leaders and honor your commitment to women, girls, and gender-expansive people in Minnesota.

Flexibility in How, When and Where You Give

  • Give to support general operations, which allows WFMN to be responsive and identify areas of greatest needs
  • Give to any fund that aligns with your passions, such as the Young Women’s Initiative of Minnesota or the Safety Fund
  • Make your gift on a schedule that works for you: monthly, quarterly, or annual installments

For more information, please contact Nadia Siddiqui, Vice President of Advancement, at or 612.236.1808.
