Energized by CAMP 2017, Journalism and Women Symposium is looking toward the season of giving as an opportunity to bolster our interactive and welcoming community for women in journalism.
We’re participating in Giving Tuesday (Nov. 28) and we’re asking you to help fund training that will help women journalists stay on the cutting edge of their profession. Give the cost of a week’s worth of coffee prepared by your favorite barista. Ask your family and friends to give to JAWS in lieu of buying you something else you don’t really need (or want) this holiday season. No gift is too small, and small gifts add up!
In 2018, we’d like to bring more training opportunities to our members and their colleagues through webinars, events and regional trainings. Given the issues that women in journalism – or any space, for that matter – are facing today, we see an opportunity to provide valuable tools and connections that can help keep women’s voices in the media so they can continue to hold those in power accountable and work towards a more accurate portrayal of the whole society.
Our goal is to raise $3,000 for a wide variety of trainings, both in-person and virtual. Each dollar you give will go towards expanding and strengthening valuable connections that help support – and keep – women in journalism. JAWS is a charitable nonprofit organization (501(c)3), so your donations are tax-deductible.

Share a photo or video on social media with the hashtag #GivingJAWSDay, and don’t forget to tag @womenjournos on Twitter and Instagram so we can repost and retweet. You can also use the Giving Tuesday Facebook Frame to make sure all your friends know when to give, or enter the #MyGivingStory contest to win up to $10,000 for JAWS.
Shop with our Amazon Smile link on Black Friday, Cyber Monday or any time beyond, and a percentage of your purchases will support JAWS.
Thank you in advance for giving. We hope you have a wonderful holiday season!
