The FOUNDATION FOR WOMEN also invites you to participate in a $5 FOR 5 fundraising campaign benefitting hundreds of hardworking, underserved women entrepreneurs in San Diego County.

Beginning April 1 and for the entire month, we ask FFW friends, supporters and well-wishers to use their cell phones to make a $5 contribution to our organization’s life-changing work, and to encourage 5 or more of their friends and family to do the same.

With this very small gift, anyone can become a philanthropist. And by engaging others in this effort, anyone can be a leader in bringing positive social change to some of our region’s most vulnerable communities. The proceeds of the $5 FOR 5 campaign will support the enrollment of industrious women into FFW’s business training and educational programs and provide microloans to help them establish businesses of their own – an invaluable investment that will yield lifelong benefits and create ripple effects for generations to come.

Here is how it works:

• Text 52000 using your text icon e.g. To: 52000 (US Only).
• Enter keyword WOMEN (as text message).
• Press send (your gift will be billed to your mobile account).
• Wait for reply, then text YES.
• You will receive a thank you/confirmation text.
• Forward text instructions to 5 friends or make a contribution in each of their names.
• If outside the US or have no text capacity, follow DONATE NOW button on
