Join Us. Donate. Participate.
When you support WATER, you help to maintain a space where feminist scholars and activists can find their paths, and continue to work for the rights of women and other marginalized communities.
For example, Ciara Chivers (pictured to the left) was one of our Summer 2014 interns. A recent graduate of Tufts University who won the Department of Religion Prize, she is interested in Women’s Studies, Religion, and American History, as well as sexuality education. For Ciara and many others, time spent at WATER helps develop the future of women in religious scholarship and ministry.
Ways to Support Us
In a time when a woman’s right to make her own medical decisions is being threatened, and churches around the world are using their positions of power to impede on the rights of LGBTIQ people, women, and abuse survivors, we need your help to amplify more progressive voices. Your tax-deductible donation to WATER will help create a powerful financial resource to ensure the future of feminist religious values and to make religious and social change. You will also receive an “e-hug” from us on social media sites like Facebook and Twitter! Gifts from friends are crucial to WATER’s future and can be made in a variety of ways.

Joe Scinto is one of our most loyal and frequent visitors and volunteers at the WATER office. Motivated by his commitment to equal rights for women and the LGBTQ community, and by the memory of his late wife Carol Murdock Scinto—another long-time volunteer and friend, and the person after whom our library is named—Joe comes into the office about once a week to help with our day-to-day operations, share lunch or coffee, and brighten our day. There’s always work to be done around the WATER office. We would love to have you come help us. Learn more >
