To The Finish Line

We’re excited to have you participate in WWCode to the Finish Line, an initiative that transforms movement into a way to highlight our mission to empower diverse women to excel in technology careers. This fundraising campaign symbolizes a single kilometer or mile's impact in moving the tech industry closer to crossing the finish line of gender equality.

As you prepare to walk, run, or roll with WWCode to the Finish Line by Saturday, September 23, 2023, please review the instructions for creating your fundraising page to reach your goal of $2,600 ( 2,600 represents the national percentage of women in tech—26%) or more successfully.

To set up your fundraising page, visit: WWCode to the Finish Line.

You can’t say fundraising without FUN! Be sure to have fun. You are supporting a cause you care about and making a difference in your community. 

Sometimes, the best method for engaging people in a cause you are passionate about is asking them to donate in person or over the phone. Those in the fundraising business call it, “smiling and dialing.” Be sure to have an easy and convenient way for people to give if you ask in person or on the phone. For example, have your fundraising page pulled up for them, or be prepared to text them a direct link while you chat on the phone. It’s best to get the donation before hanging up.

Lead others to make an impact and enjoy the fun of WWCode to the Finish Line by creating a team!

  1. Once your fundraising page is active, click “Create a team.”
  2. Create a team name and click “Let’s Go!”
  3. On the next page, click “Continue.”
  4. Upload a team cover photo, add a story, and click “Continue.” You can skip this step, however, the more customized your page is the more likely your mission will resonate with visitors.
