Please contribute today and help us empower women in times of challenge and change. Here is how you can make a difference:

  • $100 = two psychotherapy sessions
  • $500 = a full course of therapy for one woman
  • $1,200 = two months of weekly support groups for up to 16 women living in low-income neighborhoods
  • $2,500 = full course of therapy for five women in need
  • $5,000 = full course of therapy for ten women in need

The Women's Initiative is actively seeking individuals to become members of our Founder's Circle. $10,000 will place you among a group of dedicated sustaining friends who are making a financial commitment of a minimum of $30,000 over three years. Multi-year pledges from local philanthropists speak to the strength of our agency and also position us to pursue multi-year grants.

You may also earmark your gift for special programming:

  • Bienestar - provides individual counseling and support groups in Spanish for Latina women in our community.
  • Neighborhood Health Outreach Program at the Jefferson School City Center - provides mental and physical health treatment plans for women and children with a special focus on obesity prevention.
