CIRCLE OF MINERVA
In 1992, the CWBA Foundation established the Leadership Circle, which was created to provide leadership in fundraising and sought a ten-year commitment of giving. Many generous supporters donated through the Leadership Circle.
In June, 2012, the CWBA Foundation introduced the Circle of Minerva, a five-year giving program, to expand the scope of potential donors. The program is named after the goddess of wisdom and offers a simplified donation structure of giving $150 per year for five years.
The work of the CWBA Foundation could not be accomplished without its Circle of Minerva donors. This illustrious group is the backbone of the CWBA Foundation and represents a long list of CWBA and CWBA Foundation leaders and supporters. Each year, Circle of Minerva members gather for their own "Pre-Reception Reception" at the Raising the Bar Dinner. You receive a free drink ticket as a Circle of Minerva member for that reception.
We would like to invite you to join this illustrious group (if you haven’t already)! When you Join the Circle of Minerva, you make a five-year commitment to donate $150 to the CWBA Foundation each year (for a total donation of $750). During your giving period, and forever thereafter, you are a member of the Circle of Minerva (though many people renew their commitment every five years). It’s that simple.
The entire amount of your contribution is tax-deductible.
