Join us in shaping the future of our communities and the earth.
This dedicated group of donors, known as the Giving Circle, allows us to dream.
Launched by author and environmentalist, Julia Butterfly Hill — who wanted to see a community of committed individuals completely underwrite WEA’s operational costs — WEA’s Giving Circle is now over 50 people strong. For the last several years, our Giving Circle has covered 100% of our operational costs, allowing us to focus the needed energy on our programmatic work.
WEA’s history has been defined by this Giving Circle, whose multi-year support allows us to be responsive, visionary and bold. Some give monthly, others give annually, but each individual contributes anywhere between $1,500 and $150,000 each year for 3 years. Giving Circle members receive special updates and opportunities to directly connect with our grassroots colleagues, as well as a chance to gather at our Giving Circle Dinner.

"When Kirsten and I first attended a Women's Earth Alliance event 3 years ago, I was struck with this realization: What we do to women, we do to the earth, and what do to the earth, we do to women.
Given that WEA exists to empower women on the ground to effect real change and positively impact the environmental issues we face, we were immediately compelled to support this beautiful organization and introduce others to WEA."
CURT HILL · GIVING CIRCLE MEMBER SINCE 2017
“What first spoke to us was that what WEA was creating was so simple, so effective, so necessary! We saw how our financial support of WEA is directly translated into action and measurable achievement. We are also enriched in return by our warm and deep connections to the people of WEA. Each of them we have come to know personally has taken us in as partners and confidants. We continually receive the gift of passion, inspiration, compassion and the honest confidence that grass roots work like this can change lives and our earth for the better. We’re supporting WEA for the long haul.”

“Thank you for demonstrating what it looks like to connect vision to action, and to tell an important story as well as it deserves to be told.”
DARIAN RODRIGUEZ HEYMAN · GIVING CIRCLE MEMBER SINCE 2011
“Thank you for creating an adaptive, fierce edge that causes significant change in this world. Thank you for discerning value and how to apply resources. I admire WEA's commitment and ability to inspire. And thank you for including me in your circle.”
LAURA BELZER · GIVING CIRCLE MEMBER SINCE 2011
"I just renewed my Giving Circle pledge for another 3 years. I think of my support of WEA as an investment, not as a donation. It's an investment in building a world I want to live in. I want to look our children and their children in the eyes and tell them that I did what I could when the future of the planet was hanging in the balance. WEA makes it possible for me to do that."
