Sponsor The Project

The Mormon Women Project is thinking big! In 2011, we want to:

• Pay for professional transcription services. To produce each interview, volunteers spend 4-6 hours transcribing the live conversation. Your donation will help us pay for professional transcription services so we can spend our time seeking out fascinating women and publishing two interviews a week, instead of just one.

• Compensate interviewers and photographers. The MWP would like to pay its interview producers $50 for each interview published. We would also like to pay each photographer $50 for portrait photography of each interview subject. This would cost $10,000 for one year.

• Host additional events. Our Salon evening in September 2010 was a huge success, and we would like to be able to expand our Salon program in 2011 with at least two additional events. Costs include location rental as well as printed materials, flowers, videography (so the event’s discussions can be shared on the site), and possibly refreshments. We would also like to be able to provide simple branded materials so that similar Salons can be offered in other locations by volunteers.

• Compensate interviewers and photographers. The MWP would like to be able to offer a small compensation to our dedicated volunteers.

• Additional funds would be used for online marketing, website maintenance and upkeep, and design services for printed materials.

The Mormon Women Project is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation. All donations are tax deductible to the extent provided by law. For more details, visit our visit our Donations page.

Open Positions at the MWP
As of May 2012

MWP Salon Event Hosts (Salt Lake City and other locations)

The MWP is planning to host live gatherings, called “Salons”. These gatherings will be in women’s homes, and each will feature an interesting LDS woman or a panel of women in the community who will speak to the assembled group. These meetings will be open to the public, with event information posted on the website, but members of our email newsletter list will receive personal invitations. As part of the Salon, there will be a short presentation about the MWP and guests will be asked to make a suggested donation of $20 to the organization.

We would like to have these salons meeting in a number of cities, so if you are interested in hosting a salon in your city, please let us know.
