Invest to Empower Women: Invest in IWCA

Your support is essential to ensure a consistently impactful IWCA.  Contributions to invest in the IWCA can be made via our online portal, check, or credit card. Please contact Sharon Riechers, IWCA Co-Vice President with any questions.

Become an IWCA Sustaining Supporter

While being a volunteer-driven organization has achieved success, IWCA must transition to a staffed business model to ensure an impactful level of service.

In April 2018, Kohana Coffee became an IWCA Sustaining Supporter with a $25,000 investment for the 2018-2019 year. With this investment, we made critical strides to strengthen the IWCA global organization in 2018.

As we begin 2019, a fundraising Task Force is working to build on this success and recruit Sustaining Partners to invest to transition Kellem Emanuele to the role of IWCA Executive Director, ensure Blanca Castro’s work as Chapter Manager can continue, and establish a travel fund to cover the costs associated with representing IWCA at key industry events.

For more information, or to join as an IWCA Sustaining Partner, contact IWCA Co-VP and Treasurer, Sharon Riechers or IWCA Co-founder and Sustaining Partner Campaign Chair, Melissa Pugash.

Visit our Partner page to explore examples: integrating support for IWCA into your product sales, hosting a community event to raise funds and awareness, or create something new!
