What is Smart Party?
Smart Party is The Women's Fund of Greater Birmingham's signature fundraiser. It's a virtual crowdfunding event that leverages the power of collective giving to build an Alabama where all women can thrive. Every dollar raised fuels our grantmaking, research, and advocacy to accelerate women’s economic opportunity.
How do I attend?
This year, Smart Party is a virtual event, but you still need a ticket to attend the online party! The event will stream live on this website on Thursday, October 8 at noon. Your ticket includes a unique ticket code that you will need to enter in order to view the livesteam.
Step 1: Get your ticket. You can buy an individual ticket ($45) or host a Smarty Pants Team (free).
Step 2: Check your email for your ticket. This email also includes a link to your personal fundraising page.
Step 3: Share the link to your fundraising page everywhere! Ask your friends to support The Women's Fund by donating, buying a ticket, or sharing your page.
