Join the Leadership Circle

The Leadership & Legacy Circle was formed in 2000 to honor and thank donor-partners for their active investment in creating a world of opportunity where women, girls, and gender-expansive people have the power to create and lead safe, prosperous lives.

How to Join

With an annual gift of $1,000 or more, you join a group of passionate and committed donors as a member of the Women’s Foundation of Minnesota’s Leadership Circle. Receive invitation-only benefits, including the annual Leadership & Legacy Circle Celebration, which celebrates the generosity and commitment of donor-partners like you. We are grateful for Leadership Circle donor-partners and celebrate your commitment to women and girls in Minnesota.

Flexibility in How 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.

Ways to Give

When you make a gift to the Women’s Foundation of Minnesota, you join us in our mission to achieve gender & racial justice for women, girls, & gender-expansive people statewide.

Explore below the different ways you can give.

Donor Advised Funds

Build your philanthropic wealth with a charitable savings account. Contributions are tax-deductible in the year the donor transfers money into the donor advised funds.

Gifts of Stock

Donors can support our work through a gift of stock or other assets. Making a stock gift may increase the impact of your gift and has potential tax advantages.

Corporate & Workplace Giving

Maximize your impact with a generous sponsorship, workplace giving, or matching gift.

Online Donations

Your gift funds investment in research, grantmaking, and policy to drive gender and racial equity in Minnesota.

“As a donor, I see myself not only as a partner, but also a champion to increase equity for women and girls.”
