Membership

Become a Member of VSW or Renew Your Membership: VSW membership allows you to become involved in local and national campaigns regarding feminist advocacy, welfare initiatives, women's rights, government policy, and inter-organizational affairs.

Who Can Join? Regardless of your background or lifestyle, VSW believes that all women should have access to determining the future of their lives and the policies that shape them; therefore, we welcome all women to become members!

How Much is Membership? Suggested annual fee payment is $25; however, because we believe that you should pay what you can afford, membership fees can be determined on a sliding scale to give access to women who may be facing financial barriers.

Donations

VSW has many options for donors - from event sponsorship, to one-time donation, to monthly sustaining donor programs. All forms of community help are appreciated! Currently, the organization requires funding for our office, anti-oppression workshops, community publications, volunteer honorariums, events & conferences.

What does VSW need? Any donation is highly regarded; however, when a donor chooses to become a monthly sustaining donor, the organization can effectively budget for on-going yearly campaigns. For $75 a month, VSW can do an on-going monthly training session for workshops, thereby increasing service to the community.

We already serve 30,000 women annually. Your donation can help double VSW's ability to meet needs, as well as give our volunteers a valuable entry-point into the community service arena. You can help give opportunities to thousands of women and your gift is not just money, but education, empowerment, agency, and potential for leadership. Help set the foundation for responsible, empathetic, community decision-makers by donating to VSW.

Place everything in the mail and VSW will be in touch with you shortly to notify you of your account information. Your donation will help us combat Provincial funding cuts and will allow us to maintain stability in our efforts to meet our community's needs.
