The open enrollment period for membership is between August 1st and April 1st and is available to women 21 years old and older. No member sponsorship is required to join and there are no residency restrictions. All you need is a desire and drive to make a difference in the community by working together. Our members live throughout Fairfield County and range in age and background. We have members who are single, married, divorced; as well as stay-at-home moms, and women who work full and part-time.
Membership enables you to be a part of a local network of women, build on existing strengths, and gain new skills. Members are asked to participate in membership requirements such as volunteering during fundraisers, taking part in community service projects, and attending general meetings. Additional involvement can include a Board of Director position or roles on committees such as: CraftWestport, the Minute Man Race, Grants, Sponsors, and PR/Marketing.
There is an opportunity for every woman to contribute to the WYWL mission! We have an internal mantra of PACT: Passion, Accountability, Collaboration, and Transformation. #BuildingCommunity begins from within.
As a member-funded nonprofit organization, Members contribute annual dues. All membership dues go towards offsetting the WYWL operating costs and are considered a tax write-off according to the U.S. Tax Code. Contributing membership dues is one way the WYWL maximizes the amount we donate to the community!
Becoming a Member of the WYWL is easy! Just fill out the Membership Form below and submit your dues contribution. If you have any questions about making a financial contribution to the League, please reach out the WYWL Vice President: firstname.lastname@example.org
