FAQ’s

Q.      What is the time commitment required for Project W members?

A.         The minimum commitment is to make a $550 donation by June 1st and to vote in person or by submitting a ballot in advance of the meeting.  If you would like to be more involved, you can join a committee that evaluates the grant applications or spread the word about the Fund to charitable organizations that may be interested in submitting a grant application. Encouraging and enlisting new members to the Fund is appreciated!  This is YOUR Fund – together, we can make a difference!

Q.        If I am unable to donate the full $550, can I team up with a friend to pool our donations?

A.         Yes! However, you will get one vote and one of you will need to select one individual to serve as the official representative of your group.  We recommend a maximum of 5 women per group.

Q.        If I contribute more than $550, do I get another vote?

A.         Additional contributions are appreciated and would go toward grants awarded and any programming costs for that year.  However, you would only have one vote. 

Q.        Can I gift membership to a friend or family member?

A.         If you’d like to purchase multiple memberships, you can gift additional memberships to family or friends — then that individual would receive a vote.

Q.        Can I join if I don’t live in Delaware County?

A.         Yes! We welcome all who are interested in making an impact in Delaware County.

Q.        Do you accept employer matching donations?

Q.        I am not ready to be a member just yet, but want to support Project W.  Can I make a contribution?

A.         Thank you!  Additional funds will go directly toward grants awarded and any programming costs for that year.
