Ways to Give

Become a champion for Connecticut’s women and girls! Without you, we cannot fight for an equitable society where women and girls thrive. There are many ways to support CWEALF’s work for gender equity every day. First, sign up here to receive CWEALF's email news to be the first to know to take action for women and girls in CT! 

Give today, give monthly, or give in honor of someone you love!


Know that each dollar you contribute protects gender equity in our state and ensures that CWEALF can serve as your tireless advocate!

Become a Monthly Sustainer

Set the $ amount and frequency of your recurring donation. Your recurring gift gives CWEALF reliable monthly income and YOU make a long-term impact for gender equity in our state. We can’t fight for paid leave and pay equity without our monthly sustainers’ support!

Dedicate Your Gift

Dedicate your donation in honor of someone who has made a difference in your life, and CWEALF will send your honoree a letter to share the love!

Create a Facebook Fundraiser for CWEALF

Ask your personal social networks to support the nonprofits you love – like CWEALF! Set up a fundraiser on Facebook for your birthday or during the holiday giving season.

Support CWEALF When You Shop
When you make purchases through Amazon Smile a percentage of your purchase is donated to a charity you choose. When you shop, choose the Connecticut Women’s Education and Legal Fund as your charity and we will use these dollars to fight for paid leave and pay equity here in CT!
