Become a Special Supporter

Intro Image

“I’m gratified to know my giving is creating lasting, systemic change—I’m especially proud to have helped fund the Center’s work in two landmark Supreme Court cases: one establishes that Title IX protects a person who brings a discrimination complaint from retaliation (the Jackson case); the other holds schools accountable for student-to-student sexual harassment (the Davis case). I don’t know who received the greater gift, Coach Jackson, LaShonda Davis or me.”

–Deborah Slaner Larkin, CEO, Women’s Sports Foundation

For more than 40 years, the Center has expanded the possibilities for women and their families, thanks to support from our generous donors. The Center is committed to rising above the challenges ahead, to securing past gains, and to advancing equality and opportunity for women and girls.

In support of this commitment, we offer several opportunities for donors who want to get involved more deeply with our mission.

In honor of Brooksley Born’s extraordinary service as the Center’s Board Chair for nearly 40 years, the Center created the Brooksley Born Innovation Fund.
