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!

Stories From Donors & Grant Recipients

I feel like I took the step in the right direction. Before then, I didn’t have the tools or motivation to do anything differently with my life. Now I want more, I know there is more for me, and it’s exciting!

Stories From Donors & Grant Recipients

This program is bigger than computer skills. Not only are these women strengthening their digital and financial literacy, they are building their own self-confidence. 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.

- Susan Hunsader, Even Start Lead Instructor
