    • Chapter Grants Program Chair: Nancy Dvoracek
      This program was designed to give a chapter the funds needed to do that special project they would be unable to run without financial aid. Grant applicants must donate $25 to the Foundation to be eligible to apply for a grant. Grants applications are due postmarked December 1st and are presented at the Winter State meeting.
    • Corporate/Presentations Chair: OPEN
      Does your employer offer grants to employees who volunteer regularly? Several do, and you are encouraged to find out whether your employer does so. Even if there is no established giving program at your company, it is possible that a tax-deductible donation will be given when you explain the philosophy and workings of the organization. These grants can be delegated as you (the recipient) wish.
           Many large employers have their own foundations, and are looking for worthy causes to donate money to. If you are aware of such an opportunity within your place of employment, assisting us with an application is an invaluable way to support the MNWT Foundation.
    • Endowment Chair: Christine Harkess
      The Endowment Committee oversees the management of the various endowment funds of the MNWT foundation, and the solicitation and recognition of sustaining members. Contact the chair to gain information regarding the current endowment fund drive, the Diamond Club.
    • Planned Giving Chair: Terri Dahlberg
      This subcommittee encourages you to remember the Minnesota Women of Today Foundation in your will. The process is as easy as the terminology that you put in writing. And you will be leaving a legacy to an organization that has given you so much.
      • What is a bequest? Anything you give or leave a charitable/non-profit organization from your estate through your will.
      • How do I make a bequest to the Minnesota Women of Today? Name the MNWT in your will by designating a specific amount, a percentage, or the remainder of your estate.
      • How should I phrase it? Following is simple language that you can share with your attorney to make sure your wishes are well known. "I hereby give and devise to the Minnesota Women of Today Foundation, a Minnesota non-profit organization, the sum of $ __________, or ______% of the residue of my estate, for its general, unrestricted purposes." Please consult your attorney for professional assistance.
    • Scholarships Chair: Jodie Meyer
