We are asking you to give the gift of legacy for future generation, while honoring special women in your life. Your tax-deductible contribution given in honor of important women in your life supports the National Women’s History’s Project’s vital work of celebrating, recognizing, and honoring women’s accomplishments throughout history. Your gift ensures that the inspiring story of women’s lives will be included in the amazing legacy of our history.
You can also make a donation in memory of someone who touched your life. For a donation of $25, we will send a Mother’s Day Memorial card acknowledging your donation in memory of a specific person, to the person to whom you would like the card sent.
Thank you for your support,
