Support PLEN

For almost 40 years, the Public Leadership Education Network (PLEN) has been changing the lives of thousands of college women across the U.S. and the world. With a very modest budget, PLEN provides high-value career building and mentorship opportunities in Washington, D.C. to develop the next generation of women leaders. Our goal is to provide all college women with access to influential decision-makers and effective career training so more women, from every corner of the U.S. and the world, have a clear path to top leadership in government, international relations, and business.

PLEN is a non-partisan 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Your donation is 100% tax deductible.


  • $1,000 funds a scholarship for a young woman to attend a seminar.
  • $500 underwrites the cost of a breakfast for PLEN students and mentors (when we’re back in person!)
  • $250 pays for a month of Facebook ads targeting college women.
  • $100 underwrites the cost of materials for 1 student.
