“In celebration of my 70th birthday, I felt it most important to give back. By making a Child Care Grant donation to WSF in honor of eleven-time Olympic medalist Allyson Felix and the women and girls who are most important to me – my two daughters, my daughter-in-law and my five granddaughters – I am able to pay respect not only to those who came before me, but also to those who will follow after me. I am very proud to know that my gift, inspired by Ms. Felix, will provide financial support to a deserving ‘mom-athlete.’ The WSF says that athletes should not have to choose between competition and motherhood … I could not agree more!”
“Growing up with limited sport and educational opportunities, I wanted things to be different for future generations and to make sure that I would become part of the change for girls and women. I am so pleased to be part of the good work WSF is doing. I decided to factor WSF in my estate planning because I am positive they will continue to create more opportunities for girls and women and advocate for equity beyond such opportunities.”
“I’ve always been in support of women’s rights. From equal pay and education opportunities to Title IX, I’ve always made gender equality an important cause in my life. WSF’s passion for this work drew me in. WSF’s commitment to advocacy for all girls and women is so important, because they address resources in issues in all communities.”
“I am inspired by the Women’s Sports Foundation and dedicate my time, resources and expertise to their work because the Women’s Sports Foundation is making a measurable impact on the way girls live, play and lead ~ one girl, one sport, one game at a time.”
“We give to WSF because of our belief in the mission and the leadership. We all have time, treasure or talent to share and are meant to serve one another and a greater good beyond ourselves.”
Your generous contribution will enable us to keep fighting for equitable access for all girls and all women across all sports, nation wide.
