Your donations mean Stronger Women and Healthier Communities

Your support will help change the lives of low-income women by giving them a way to become healthier, fitter, and more employable. And your tax-deductible gift will have an impact beyond our program participants — their increased knowledge of good nutrition will help their families, too.

Through sponsorship, you can have a direct impact on the life of an individual woman and help her break free from the cycle of poor health, obesity, employment discrimination and low income.

You can sponsor a woman through a monthly donation of $30 — just a dollar a day — or an annual donation of $360. Here’s how:

  • For a $30 monthly donation, simply click the Donate button above which will take you to our Gift of Fitness PayPal donation page. In the box provided, enter $30.00 and click the checkbox to indicate a monthly payment.
  • For a one-time $360 donation to sponsor a woman for an entire year, click the Donate button and enter $360.00 in the box provided (do not click the checkbox to the right of the payment box or you will be charged $360 every month instead of a one-time payment).
