Want to help reduce the financial burden of attending for as many feminist funders as possible? Thank you for paying full price and contributing to our Community Support Fund. All contributions go directly to offer travel and registration support. We are intentionally prioritizing the following groups:

  • Members located outside the US,
  • Members in the US with operating budgets of less than $500,000 USD,
  • Non-member intersectional feminist funds located outside the U.S. 

Apply for an additional discount and/or travel support funds by June 1, 2023 for priority consideration. We will notify you by June 15 of funding decisions. If your request is approved, we will send you a discount code to complete your registration. Discounted virtual tickets will also be made available at a later date.


The health and safety of the WFN community, including staff and participants is important to us. We recognize the impact of COVID-19 is ongoing and the importance of communicating our approach and sharing resources to inform your decision-making around health and safety. Our approach is driven by the policies of our host country, the size and scale of our event, and the reality of vaccine inequity globally. 

At this time, we are following the guidelines set out by the U.S., and local D.C. government. While we will take preventative measures – such as providing masks and access to hand sanitizer – to reduce the spread of COVID-19, we are not able to guarantee that participants who choose to attend in person will not be exposed to the virus while attending the event. We strongly advise participants to take all precautions based on their health conditions and personal circumstances.


WFN will offer a 75% refund of paid ticket cost for cancellations requested on or before August 11, 2023. Cancellation instructions in confirmation email.
