Annual Appeal


Celebrating 20 Years of Paving the Path to Global Gender Equality


Our 2023 annual appeal is underway and is key to fulfilling our mission to achieve global gender equality! We need your support now more than ever to create a future where every woman and girl has a chance to live freely, rise to her full potential, and achieve her dreams. We raise about one-third of our funds from our year-end annual appeal. Please help us reach our goal of raising $470,000 by December 31st.

There are several ways that you can support our annual appeal:

  1. Make an annual appeal gift. Donations can be made online, or by mailing a check to: Together Women Rise, P.O. Box 890272 Charlotte, NC 28289-0272.
  2. Join our Founders’ Circle with a gift of $1,000 or more.
  3. Create your own fundraiser. With our online fundraising platform, Classy, you can easily create an individual fundraising page that you can share with friends, family members, co-workers, and neighbors. It is like setting up a Facebook fundraiser, but better! It is easy to set up your fundraising page, and we have put together a step-by-step guide as well as an instructional video to help you.
  4. Host a fundraiser with your chapter. Does your chapter like to host events? Consider holding a fundraiser to support Rise’s annual appeal. Chapter fundraisers are a creative and fun way to raise money and share your love for Rise with your family and friends. Please note that Together Women Rise does have specific guidelines on chapter fundraisers and that all chapters interested in holding a fundraiser must first submit a Fundraiser Approval Form to the Home Office.

Donations to our annual appeal are used to:

  • Fund our grants and partnerships
  • Conduct rigorous screening, vetting, and monitoring of our grantees
  • Provide excellent educational materials and engagement opportunities for our members
  • Support new and existing chapters across the U.S.
  • Provide resources and support for members to raise their voices and advocate for women and girls globally
  • Ensure that we have a strong, sustainable organization for years to come
