Financially Support WEI

WEI's sustainability depends on the generous support of companies, organizations and individuals like you! When you donate to Women's Entrepreneurship Initiative, your resources help women turn their dreams into a reality! 

The Women's Entreprenurship Initiative has made a lasting impact for Saint Mary's College students and for the South Bend and Michiana community since its inception in 2009. To find out about how WEI has supported women in the community, CLICK HERE

Locally, your funding supports our microenterprise training program (SPARK) for women. Your investment helps to create jobs and economic self-sufficiency for WEI clients. This has a positive impact not only on them but also on their families and our community.

To financially support WEI, click the blue button. Make sure to specify WEI as the recipient by scrolling to the "I want my gift to support..." field and entering "Women's Entrepreneurship Initiative" in the textfield. You can indicate if you want to benefit the WEI external community based programs or the internal student based WEI initiatives. 

Matching Gift Program:  Many employers offer matching gift programs to encourage their employees to support charitable causes. These programs often match funds for donations or volunteer time. Every employer has unique rules for such programs, so check with your Human Resources Department for guidelines on the type of organization and how much they can receive in matching funds. They can also provide you with the necessary form(s).
