Help EWI raise $55,500 on April 17th, 2013 to provide 30 entrepreneurship scholarships to immigrant, refugee and low-income or at-risk women.
EWI also has partnered with ACT for Alexandria to donate 5% of funds raised during Spring2ACTion April 17 to The Boston Foundation to support those impacted by the recent tragedy.
Each scholarship includes 60 hours of business start-up training, 30 hours of mentoring, coaching and support services, networking opportunities and access to micro-loans of up to $5,000 per start-up.
Every once in a while we have an opportunity to transform everything; to make dreams happen, and lift out of poverty and isolation more women, families and communities than ever before.
This opportunity is a chance to make a real impact. And you are a critical part of this effort.
On Wednesday, April 17th, our community will come together for 24 hours of unprecedented giving to support the important work of Alexandria charities through Spring2ACTion, hosted by ACT for Alexandria and ACTion Alexandria.
Last year, with your generous donations, we raised $24,000; $15,804 in donations from 414 donors and an additional $7,500 in prizes. We came in first place for individual fundraiser, in second place for most individual donors, and third place for most dollars out of 72 nonprofit organizations.
Spring2ACTion is our opportunity to team up again, and together raise funds that educate and empower women to carve new pathways to independence through entrepreneurship.
Make a donation of minimum $10 on April 17. Your tax-deductible gift will give us a chance to win up to $30,000 in grants and prizes.
It is rare when we have such an opportunity for all of us to come together in one day to do our best, to give out best. I hope I can count on you once more for this campaign.
Together we can ensure that immigrant, refugee and low-income women continue to find meaningful ways to make a living, inspire their children and pursue the American Dream.
