Become a Member
Becoming a member is easy. First, you’ll need to decide between a full membership and a shared membership.
Full Membership Women who contribute $1,000 (or more) are full members and will have the opportunity to cast their individual vote at the annual meeting for the final grant recipient!
Shared Memberships Women who join with other women to pool their resources may participate in a shared membership. Together, the group will have one vote for the final grant recipient. The group will identify a group leader who will be responsible for collecting and submitting the individual gifts of the group and for casting the group’s vote at the annual meeting.
Click here to contribute online via Stripe (or send a check to the address below — call 812-422-1245 if you’d like to give with your credit card by phone or if you’d like us to send an invoice by mail).
Then, secure your membership by June 30 and attend our annual meeting the following November. At the annual meeting, organizations identified as finalists by the Women’s Fund grants committee will give a brief presentation to members, who will then cast their votes. Recipients are identified that night!
At our start in 2007, the initial goal of the Women’s Fund was to bring together 100 women as members. The result in our first year was 185 women who participated and supported the Women’s Fund in some way. Today, we have far surpassed our initial membership goals, and our membership continues to grow.
