We believe in the power of building a diverse and inclusive community with women of different ages, wisdom traditions, ethnicities, and sexual orientations. It is critical to have different perspectives in order to radically co-create something new. This is why we have developed ways to support women who are called to be part of our community, but who do not have the financial resources to participate.
The intention of the WisdomWomen scholarship fund, and our sliding-scale membership, is to provide financial assistance for women with financial need, and who belong to communities who have historically lacked access to wealth and wealth opportunities. We prioritize funding for women who self-identify as:
- women of color
- indigenous women
- women with disabilities
- LGBTQ women
To receive financial support for a Visionary Gathering from the WisdomWomen Fund, follow these steps:
- Apply for a Visionary Gathering (if there is an application requirement).
- Fill out this scholarship application form.
- Submit a video that shares 1) why you want to attend a Visionary Gathering and 2) why you need financial support to do so. Videos must be under 60 seconds. Your scholarship application will not be considered complete until we have your video. Please send your youtube or vimeo video link to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The sooner we receive your application and video, the sooner we can either award your financial support or use our campaign to raise more money on your behalf.
