Dear Sponsors

Re: Igbo Women League Fundraising 2017

The Igbo Women League of Minnesota (“IWL”) would like to solicit your support as we celebrate our 23rd Annual Mother’s Day Celebration on Saturday May 13th, 2017, at Ramada Plaza Minneapolis, 1330 Industrial Blvd NE Minneapolis, MN 55413. This is an annual fundraising event to support the projects that we undertake in order to fulfill the many objectives of the organization.

IWL is a non-profit organization that is committed to unifying, identifying, educating and promoting the socio-cultural and economic development of Igbo Women and their families residing in Minnesota, while improving women and children’s lives in Nigeria.

Based on generous donations in past years, IWL has been able to support and equip nine (9) orphanages in Nigeria. These orphanages abound due to the high incidence of death of women of childbearing age. We have also set up scholarship funds for the educational advancement of forty six (46) female students from low-income families in Nigeria. These scholarship funds cover educational costs from junior high through senior high school for these students. Twenty-six (26) of our scholarship recipients have graduated from high school. With your support, we made it a reality to sponsor those students through the university, techniccal school and/or apprenticeship program

Locally, IWL has, since its inception, worked to promote unity between the Ibos and the greater Minnesota community, and also enhance cultural awareness by funding and implementing various cultural and educational projects.

All these and other projects cannot be sustained without your generous support and contributions. Other ways you can assist us include sponsoring a student for one year ($400) or more; advertising your business or recognizing the important women in your life in our brochure; or making a donation on the day of the event. We will greatly appreciate your support as we work tirelessly to achieve our numerous objectives. Checks can be made out to IWL and mailed to 7200 Brooklyn Boulevard, Brooklyn Center MN 55429. IWL is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, donations are tax deductible.

Together we can make a difference. Thank you in advance for your continued support.
