Stories From Donors & Grant Recipients

Stories From Donors & Grant Recipients

The Girls’ Grantmaking Project was one of my favorite experiences. We were a group of high school girls meeting on a common goal and fixing a problem in the community. And we had the really big job of deciding who deserves a huge amount of money. That’s women power and I was really excited to be a part of it!

By overcoming fears and developing new skills, the 12 women of Even Start are becoming empowered and increasing the probability of future success for their families.
