Ways you can contribute to SCN:

  • Annual Fund. The Board accepts your gifts and donations to the SCN Annual Fund to further the organization's mission.

  • Memorial Fund. This fund was established as a living memorial and is designed to support and further the organization's unique mission: to help all women tell the stories of their lives. "Our mothers and grandmothers had important stories to tell," says SCN founder and former Board president Susan Wittig Albert, "but sometimes they did not have the opportunity to do so. Now, family members and friends who would like to make a contribution in remembrance of their mother's or grandmother's personal story will have an opportunity to do so—and to know that their memorial contribution will go to further SCN's efforts to help every woman tell her story." See this page for more information.

  • Sugar Bowl. SCN's Sugar Bowl is the place where we keep gifts especially given to help women participate in SCN. Currently, Sugar Bowl funds are used to support annual memberships for women who need our support: they've have lost a job, or are having trouble making ends meet, or are in prison, or who otherwise just need a helping hand. [You remember the sugar bowl, don't you? That's where Aunt Hattie always kept her butter-and-egg money, and when the nieces and nephews needed new shoes, she'd take off the lid and reach inside...]

  • Conference Scholarships for Women of Color. For our 10th biannual conference (July, 2018) we are focusing on diversity, difference, and community. The conference will feature workshops that encourage us to explore and share our experiences of diversity, difference, and similarity. We invite your gifts to support for conference scholarships for women of color
