"During my second year, I discovered the Women’s Center internship program. And it all clicked. It was a 19-year-old Taylor’s dream. A space dedicated to fostering dignity for women and girls? Working for gender justice here and globally? Actual programs to institute social change? I knew it was something I had to be a part of."

"It’s a very special blessing to be in a community of intellectuals that are driven and dedicated to the pursuit of knowledge. It’s an even more special blessing to be in a place like the Women’s Center where staff and interns give and give and give, constantly using their power for good."

Pledge Now

Pledging helps you provide support at a level that’s right for you – and helps us plan for the future of our programs and services. Many UVA alums like to pledge on a 5-year basis in sync with their reunions as class participation rates include members’ giving to any area of the University. 
  • Contact us with any questions about making a pledge.

Invest in Our Future

Planned giving can be as simple as designating the Women’s Center as a beneficiary of your retirement plan or life insurance. Specifying other assets to give in your will is another straightforward option. Or your planning may bring you to the conclusion that the best option for you is a gift that pays a lifetime income to you (or to beneficiaries you choose).
  • If you have included the Women’s Center in your will, trust or estate plan, please let us know.
  • Please contact us if you are interested in planning a future gift. We would be happy to connect you with information about the readily available options and the tax and financial planning advantages associated with these types of gifts.
