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

Collective Giving

It's easy for individuals, businesses and foundations to create a Match Payment on Connecther!

  • Choose a Project Close to Your heart that you would love to fund.
  • In the drop down menu choose "match payment". Only selected projects qualify for match payments. Projects must have a verified nonprofit paypal account to qualify. Drop down is currently defaulted to one-time. To make a match payment, select "match payment" from drop down menu under "How You Can Help". If match payment is not available in the drop-down, then the project does not qualify for our matching program.
  • Select your match amount (current minimum is $25.00 and current max is $2,000.00)
  • Follow the giving cart instructions.
  • You may be prompted to create a paypal account. This is simple and will only take a minute!
  • Your Match Payment will show up on your designated project page as an open-match until your match is met.
  • Once your match is met, your donation will take effect! For example, if the current project funding is at $500 and your match payment is $100, when the project goal reaches $600, your match will take effect and the current project funding will increase to $700!! You will receive an email notifying you that your match has triggered and processed as a fully tax deductible donation!"
