10 for 10 Capital Campaign


When the Center for Women in Law was launched nine years ago, the idea was a mere glimmer in the eyes of its Founders.  CWIL is now one of the largest and perhaps most prestigious networks of women lawyers in the United States. We have developed and implemented education programs that are having a demonstrated effect on advancing women in their legal careers.

We express gratitude for the work we have done, and we now look forward with great anticipation to our 10th anniversary celebration to be held in conjunction with the 2019 Women’s Power Summit on April 10-12, 2019. With the approach of the 10th anniversary, we are thrilled to announce the launch of the 10 for 10 Capital Campaign with the goal of doubling CWIL’s endowment.

The campaign was officially launched at CWIL’s Award Luncheon on April 13. We were delighted to go into the luncheon with $150,000 raised. At the luncheon, we raised an additional $184,000—for a total of more than $300,000 going towards CWIL’s endowment. As a result, we are well on the way to reaching our goal of $1.5 million by CWIL’s 10-year anniversary next year.

We invite you to join us with a pledge of $10,000, hence 10 for the 10th Anniversary. If you happen to be 70 ½ or older, you may want to consider a distribution from your IRA. If $10,000 is not in the cards right now, please know that any gift is greatly appreciated.  Donors will be invited to a private reception at a future CWIL event.

Your support will ensure that CWIL is able to serve as a defining institution for the advancement of women lawyers in the 21st century and beyond. Donate now or download pledge card.
