Give to JAWS by Dec. 31 and double your impact

Are you looking to give a priceless gift to women in journalism this giving season? With a year-end donation to Journalism and Women Symposium, you can double your impact.

A generous group of JAWS stakeholders has put up a $10,000 pledge to match all donations through December 31. Just think of the training, networking and career support we’ll be able to provide!

Here is what your tax-deductible donation can do:

$30 Fund the Future: Fund our membership efforts to spread the word about JAWS to other women journalists across the country.

$75 Support a Sister: Your donation will be combined with others and supports the regional workshops we provide to JAWS members throughout the year.

$150 Commit to Change: We will pool your contribution with others to give more young women the JAWS experience with a CAMP fellowship or other assistance to help build careers for women in journalism.

$300 Subsidize a Speaker: Combined with other funds your donation will help underwrite a CAMP speaker’s fees and travel expenses making this year’s conference the best CAMP ever.

$600 Weave the Web: Help cover the costs of updating the JAWS website and revamping the listserv ensuring we all stay connected.

$1,000 Swim with the Sharks: Earn your very own silver shark by joining our most supportive JAWS members who are committed to ensuring women’s voices are heard loud and clear.

JAWS relies on the support of donors big and small, and each dollar you give will go towards expanding and strengthening valuable connections that help support – and keep – women in journalism. Plus, JAWS is a charitable non-profit organization (501(c)3), so your donations are tax-deductible.

How to Help

Donate at

Share the link your networks, or ask family and friends to donate to JAWS in lieu of a gift.

Post a photo or video on social media with the hashtag #GiftofJAWS and let us know why you’re donating. You can donate in the name of a JAWS friend or mentor who inspired you, give the equivalent of a week of coffee.

Thank you in advance for donating. We hope you have a wonderful holiday season!
