IWPR does not sell or rent the names and contact information of our donors and members. IWPR does not send mail or email to our donors and members on behalf of others. Although rare in the past and unlikely in the future, IWPR may trade contact information, a one-time use, with a similar organization so that we can increase our support. Donors can let us know if they wish to opt out of having their information shared. Donors and supporters can also opt out of being publicly recognized and their donation can remain anonymous, except as required by law in our IRS 990 form. Please contact our development department.

Advancing the Legacy of Dr. Mariam K. Chamberlain

In honor of pioneering feminist economist Mariam K. Chamberlain (MKC), IWPR offers a fellowship in public policy to a promising scholar each year. The Mariam K. Chamberlain Fellow contributes to a variety of research projects to inform policies affecting women. By contributing to the Mariam K. Chamberlain Fellowship Fund, your gift help sustain Dr. Chamberlain’s legacy – a  legacy built on the belief that relying on credible data and research, rather than anecdote and bias, leads to better policies for working women, and improved long-term outcomes for their families. Your contribution will help cultivate the next generation of women policy leaders.
