Why women

"There is a growing recognition among everyone from the World Bank to the U.S. military's Joint Chiefs of Staff to aid organizations like CARE that focusing on women and girls is the most effective way to fight global poverty and extremism. …The world is awakening to a powerful truth: Women and girls aren’t the problem; they are the solution."


- Nicholas D. Kristof & Sheryl WuDunn "The Women’s Crusade," New York Times Magazine, 8/23/09

how it works

connected giving


Connecther provides a platform for non-profits to raise funds for their projects. Non-profit organizations, that are providing services to women and children in their quest for self-reliance, register their organizations then add their projects to Connecther.


You browse through projects by geographical area or type of project. All of our projects provide services to women and children in their quest for self-reliance! Donors choose a project or projects to fund. Donors can contribute as an individual, within a fundraising page or can pledge an amount to match at a later date.


Each donation shows up automatically in the context of a running total so that non-profits can instantaneously see how much their project has in funding and donors can see the immediate impact of their donation! Once the funding goal is met for the Non-profit Project, Connecther sends a check to the Project Partner for the amount raised minus a 7.9% + .30 per transaction for Connecther administrative and Paypal costs.



Connecther matches donors with projects and brings awareness, visbility and funding to projects that are helping women and children.

Non-profits add their project to the Connecther website. Connecther consolidates projects so that you can choose projects by interest.
