membership: One woman, one contribution, one vote.
Membership for 2019 is now open!! If you join between December 5, 2018 and May 3, 2019 (our deadline this year), you’ll be part of ninety-nine girlfriends for our 2019 funding cycle! Join us for events, on a grant review team, on one of our other committees and to vote for our award winners in Nov 2019. Our goal for 2019 is 525 members!! If we reach this stretch goal, we will be able to offer FIVE $100,000 awards, one in each of our five focus areas.
We engage women of Portland and Southwest Washington who share a strong affiliation to the four-county area of our region. The contribution is $1,100. We know this is a big commitment for most people, but if we stretch and other women do as well, we can make meaningful grants of $100,000.
$1,000 of your donation goes into our grants pool. $100 goes towards education and administration. You can be as involved or as uninvolved as you wish - attend events, join a team or simply participate by casting your vote for our award nominees. We are an all volunteer organization.
Membership in ninety-nine girlfriends is an opportunity to connect, to learn and to join a group of women, working together, to make on impact in our community.
We will have our online sign-up system set up by early January. If you would like to make your contribution this year for 2019, please download one of the forms above, fill it in and mail it with your check to ninety-nine girlfriends address listed on the sign-up form. We hope you join us in 2019!!
