30t h A n n i v e r s a r y 1983- 2013 a vital force for gender equality 2013 Annual Report (l-r) Lee Roper-Batker and Julia Classen Dear Friends, On August 21, 2013, we lost a cherished friend and ardent catalyst for change: Mary Lee Dayton, founder of the WomenвЂ™s Foundation of Minnesota. It is with reverence, gratitude and celebration of her life and contributions that we dedicate this 30th anniversary issue of the annual report to her. Mary Lee was a pioneer. In 1983, she made the first $1 million gift ever given to a womenвЂ™s foundation to launch our foundation, the first statewide womenвЂ™s foundation in the country. Every milestone achieved over three decades, each captured in the timeline across the bottom of every page of this publication, is directly and irrevocably connected to Mary Lee. Said Mary Lee, then: вЂњI feel a responsibility as a privileged person, as a woman of wealth, not just to share my resources with others, but to actively work toward changing the status of women in our society.вЂќ And actively work toward that vision, she did. Throughout our history, Mary Lee was a guide, resource, and champion. So as we celebrate our 30th anniversary year by honoring our past and looking to the future, we will carry on her legacy and leadership to achieve equality for all women and girls in the state. вЂњWomen know what theyвЂ™re doing.вЂќ Mary Lee Dayton (1925 - 2013) Great progress was made toward this goal over the past year, as our combined investments totaled nearly $2 million in statewide grantmaking. Through the Social Change Fund, we awarded $285,000 to 18 nonprofits for an initial year of multi-year funding and $10,000 in planning grants (see pgs. 4, 6-9). Through the girlsBEST (girls Building Economic Success Together) Fund, we renewed grants to 17 nonprofits for a third and final year of funding, and awarded $77,900 in planning grants (see pgs. 4, 12-15). It was a pivotal year for MN Girls Are Not For Sale (see pgs.4, 10 -11). We played a lead advocacy role in passage of the landmark Safe Harbor legislation. While it was an incomplete and underfunded victory, it brought us $2.8 million closer to the $13.3 million needed to provide safe housing and trauma treatment for child sex trafficking victims in Minnesota. We also awarded $350,000 in grants to nine organizations focused on advocacy, housing, and addressing demand. We took our 2012 Status of Women & Girls in Minnesota research on a summer listening tour to eight Minnesota cities (see pgs. 5, 16). None of this work would be possible without the commitment and support of our donor-partners. In these pages, we are thrilled to feature a profile on one such donor, Margo Maris, a member of our Legacy Circle for Women & Girls since 2007 (see pg. 18). For 30 years, you have stood beside us for equality and justice. Thank you for being a part of this rich history and for helping us shape a better today and future for the stateвЂ™s women and girls.

In November 2012, the WomenвЂ™s Foundation released, ON THE ROAD TO EQUALITY: Statewide Findings & Policy Recommendations.

Key research findings from the 2012 Status of Women & Girls in Minnesota research were shared and community input gathered regarding women and girlsвЂ™ equality.

Annually, data is gathered and analyzed in economics, safety, health, and leadership. The Foundation then applies a gender-race-place-equity lens to the findings in order to gauge the progress of MinnesotaвЂ™s women and girls, and offer solutions.

We thank the donors for their partnership to move equality forward for all women and girls in Minnesota. profile: Margo Maris Legacy Circle member since 2007 A Generous Heart Revealed It is said that charity begins at home, and this was certainly true for Margo Maris. As a child, her mother taught her how to properly answer the door whenever a charity, such as the March of Dimes, came calling, and then to give ten dimes from her piggy bank. Generosity and a responsibility to help those less fortunate were family values Margo grew up with. Sometimes, however, a charitable nature can result in unanticipated, unexpected consequences. As a young woman, Margo learned that not all of her relatives were as charitable as her own family. Margo shared with several aunts and uncles her desire to give most of her estate to charities. None agreed with her sense of In 2007, Margo crafted her legacy plan and the WomenвЂ™s Foundation of Minnesota was selected to honor her lifetime commitment to womenвЂ™s equality. Her legacy includes a Charitable Remainder Unitrust, which will provide care for her disabled daughter for her lifetime, with the remainder coming to the WomenвЂ™s Foundation. giving, and in one case, her portion of an estate was considerably less than others. Teaching school in Berkeley, Calif., during the late-1960s, Margo became fascinated with the intersectionality between political power and spiritual power. Eventually, this fascination led her to the Graduate Theological Union (Berkeley, Calif.). After years of study, she was ordained as an Episcopal priest. Prior to becoming a priest, Margo worked in other nonprofit organizations in Berkeley, helping foundations, like the Rosenberg Foundation, assess nonprofit grants. And in 2013, Margo created a charitable gift annuity at the WomenвЂ™s Foundation, in which she receives annual income and the Foundation will receive the remainder at the end of her lifetime. We honor Margo Maris as a member of the Legacy Circle for Women & Girls and her philanthropic commitment to create a legacy of social change that levels the playing field for all women. From childhood to adulthood, the important lessons about the power of charitable giving had come full circle. 2013 Legacy circle Members Barbara J. Andersen John E.
