Hosting an Event

By hosting an event, you're going above and beyond by motivating friends, colleagues and your community to help women survivors of war rebuild their lives, families and their own communities.


Ideas for Fundraising

  • Read Between Two Worlds by Zainab Salbi with your book club, then ask members to sponsor a woman survivor at your next meeting.
  • Sell inexpensive bottles of wine at an event for double the price and donate the proceeds to Women for Women International.
  • Gather friends for a potluck dinner and then donate the amount you would have spent on dinner out to our programs.

Some Great Events

Barbara Smith created a spa day where friends get free facials as a thank you for making a $50 donation to Women for Women International.
