Sponsorships

Why we need your help!

WINC: For All Women Veterans is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing women who were injured either physically, mentally, emotionally, or even spiritually while serving in the Armed Forces, with the tools they need to enter the world again as a woman, not a service member, while also increasing national awareness about the need to successfully integrate the female warrior veteran back into society. 


  

On April 26, 2018, we will be joined by celebrities as we hold our first annual WINC: For All Women Veterans “HER2 Military Women of Excellence Awards” fundraiser, where women from the Armed Forces, as well as a civilian woman, will be honored for their community service in this country through “Excellence in Exemplary Achievement”, “Outstanding Support of Veterans”, and “Excellence in the Community” awards. 


The funds raised during this event will not only support the award nominees and the travel expenses for these very deserving women who will be nominated by their peers; but they will also support our ongoing programs, which include: advocacy, peer support groups, camp retreats, our monthly meet-ups, and our newly created Military Sisterhood Initiative. 


Please consider becoming a sponsor by making a financial donation. We are also looking for in-kind donations as well. The sponsorship details are listed below. Again, we thank you for your support.
