Pathfinder Joins the Raise for Women Challenge; Aspires to Win $25,000 for Women's Reproductive Health

Raise for Women - Donate NowThis month, Huffington Post, Skoll Foundation, and Half the Sky Movement launched the Raise for Women Challenge, to give recognition and resources to charities whose missions center on advancing the status of women. Between now and June 6, 2013, the challenge will give away $75,000 in prizes. The top three organizations to raise the most for their cause will receive $25,000, $15,000, and $10,000. In addition to the grand prizes, Raise for Women will give away $25,000 for smaller challenges along the way.

Pathfinder International is honored to be one of the organizations chosen to compete for the slate of prizes. This is a unique challenge that will help raise critical funds for Pathfinder programs as well as increase visibility for Pathfinder’s work to ensure all women have access to sexual and reproductive health care.

But we can’t win the challenge without your help!

Whether you’re making a gift—be it large or small—or giving us a hand by spreading the word about Raise for Women, you’ll be making a difference for women around the world.

Pathfinder’s main goals are:

  1. To have more than 100 unique donors
  2. To win the $25,000 grand prize by raising the most of any organization

To help us reach these goals, we are asking supporters to get involved! Give a gift today of $25, $50, or $100.
