Joining Our Community

WDN is open to self-identified women philanthropists who are committed to giving generously toward progressive social change and to build a just, equitable, and sustainable world.

Our goal is that all of our members will give more, give strategically, and give together.

WDN is supported entirely by the generosity of our members who pay an annual, tax-deductible contribution to the network. The introductory rate for new members is $4,000 per year, and the minimum renewal level is $5,000 per year. The suggested annual contribution, which sustains our work with members and in the world, is $9,000 per year.

See our Join page for more information. For more information about WDN membership, please contact Jenifer Fernandez Ancona, Vice President, Strategy & Member Engagement.
