Women’s Leadership Council is a leadership society for female donors to make a direct impact in the community by raising funds for and awareness of The Emily Program Foundation’s programs and mission to empower the prevention of eating disorders and strengthen support for recovery throughout the Twin Cities and across the country. Women who make a gift of at least $500 or are part of a combined gift of $1000 or more are invited to join.

The purpose of the Women’s Leadership Council ("Council") is to encourage leadership-level giving among women in our community through focused initiatives targeting-and positively influencing-awareness around eating disorder prevention and support. The Council will encourage donors to support its activities through volunteering, networking/social media, and fundraising.

The Council will provide a forum for its members to network and collaborate for the purpose of advancing The Emily Program Foundation’s mission and programs. Specifically, the Council will:

  1. Directly support the Foundation’s existing fundraising and awareness-building efforts, and
  2. Advance the Council’s best new ideas for raising funds and building awareness.
