Women’s Bank Walk

Women’s Bank Walk is one of the most important annual fundraising campaigns for Women’s Bank. This year’s campaign starts on 1 June and ends on 30 September. The main event day is on September 6th, which is also The Day of the Entrepreneur in Finland. We warmly welcome you all to have fun and do good with us. Together we can bring equality and empower women.

Did you know…

With the standard donation of 30 euros you can enable a woman to take part in vocational training and support her earning a livelihood.

The campaign consists of events of all shapes and sizes and is therefore a great fit to the extraordinary times in which we live. You can walk (or run or swim or dance – anything goes!) alone, with a friend or partner or in a small group. All events should follow the COVID19 regulations carefully. By following this page, you will get more information on the event locations and maybe you’ll even sign up to organise an event yourself! The information on this page will be updated regularly.

The donations raised by Women’s Bank Walk events support women in fragile circumstances by providing them with education and entrepreneurship opportunities and the chance to earn a living. Providing women with job opportunities is shown to have a significant impact on the well-being of entire communities. The standard donation, 30 €, is the equivalent of one Profession, but participants can also choose to donate a different sum of their choosing.

How can I donate?

  1. Online donation
  2. MobilePay (41109, message “KNA”) → please note this is only applicable in Finland
  3. Take part in an occasion. Find one in the upcoming list.
