Become a Member!
There are three membership categories: General Members, All Members have one equal vote, whether they give $500, $5,000, or $50,000. All Members also have an equal opportunity to join WFAR committees. All members (individual, organization/entity and foundation) are invited to join our monthly calls and vote during our grantmaking meetings, and are invited to all WFAR events.
We recommend that individual GENERAL MEMBERS donate a minimum of $500 annually to seed our Grant Fund. However, we recognize that individuals vary greatly in their ability to donate. Accordingly, individual Voting Members are invited to make a donation based on a sliding scale of $100 (at a minimum), to $500 (recommended), or more (if able and willing). In deciding the amount to donate, please keep in mind that the more you donate, the more amazing organizations we can fund. Currently, the applications for funding that we receive vastly exceed the amount we have in our Grant Fund, and in each of our grant cycles so far, we have had to turndown many deserving applicants. We would like to change that, and this is one of our reasons for switching to a sliding scale membership fee for individuals.
Members who are representing an organization/entity are considered ORGANIZATION/ENTITY MEMBERS and are required to donate a minimum of $1,000 annually to seed our Grant Fund.
FOUNDATION MEMBERS donate at least $5,000 annually to seed our GrantFund ($10,000 if you are an organization/entity). If you would like to join us as a Foundation Member, please contact us atinfo@womenfundersinAR.orgor donate a minimum of $5,000 through the link below.All Members have one equal vote, whether they give $500, $5,000, or $50,000.

SUPPORTERS donate to WFAR but are not voting members. Supporter donations will help WFAR give more money to underrepresented groups and individuals in the vegan movement, and you will see where the funds went after each voting round (May of each year). We really appreciate your donations. Supporters will be invited to all WFAR events, but are not eligible to participate in monthly member calls and voting.

*Women Funders in Animals Rights is an inclusive group that seeks to empower women and other groups historically underrepresented in leadership in the animal rights movement. Women make up 80 percent of the animal rights movement, and the leadership of the movement should reflect that.
