One of the most effective and rewarding ways to donate!! I choose to work with W4 because I know that every contribution makes a direct impact on the ground. We also often run "Donation Matching Operations" for projects, which means that W4 DOUBLES the donations it receives, allowing people to have an even bigger impact. I am so inspired by the work that the whole team at W4 does and how motivated they all are to make positive change.

I had the wonderful opportunity to work with Women’s WorldWide Web (W4) in Paris. W4’s work changes the lives of many women and girls across the world. W4’s approach of working with grassroots organizations is so impactful! I’m inspired everyday by Lindsey and her amazing team who put all their effort and heart into promoting girls' and women's rights by ensuring them access to education, healthcare, microfinance etc. Crowdfunding is the future of digital philanthropy and I look forward to seeing W4’s platform continue to grow.

W4 does an amazing job for women's empowerment worldwide. I like that W4 only works with grassroots partners around the world and also that 100% of individual donations go to the field! The crowdfunding platform system gives the opportunity to each one of us to give and change a women's life somewhere.

W4 is an innovative crowd funding platform dedicated to Women's empowerment.
I really liked the website: lots of pictures and nice articles. I then decided to make a donation mainly because 100% of individual donation are transferred directly to W4 Field partners and also it is very clear that W4 is conducting a thorough due diligence making sure our money is really going to the Field. Besides, W4 is dedicated to small innovative organizations which was really appealing to me. After my donation, i received impact reports, helping me to realize how my donation actually made a difference.
I can only encourage you to do the same!

All I truly want in this world is to leave it a better place. This is why The Women’s Worldwide Web is such an important part of who I am and what I do. One of the most powerful aspects is the way in which we aspire to harness our collaborative edge so that everyone who is part of our community can play a part in the virtuous cycle of weaving the women’s web.

One very touching and tangible way this manifested was through my 42nd birthday in 2012. Very much in the spirit of our collaborative edge, we sparked a virtuous cycle by connected W4, poetry and social marketing. I came up with ‘Births for my Birthday,’ a crowdfunding online-off line event to sponsor safe births through W4 Field Partner Birthing Project USA! What could be more poetic, activist and virtuous than ushering in safe births for both mothers and babies who would otherwise be at risk? By connecting my poetry family at The louderARTS Project with my social justice family at W4 and harnessing the connectivity of Facebook, I succeeded in partying like I have never done before. I matched the funds generated, and W4 matched the total matched funds! The results are amazing: 500 safe birth kits, that’s 500 louderBABIES!
There are endless ways, all inspiring and empowering that we can all weave the women's web, and it is our hope to form a collective of change-agents who propel the virtuous cycle.
