WITH TWO DAUGHTERS OF MY OWN, I want to set an example of giving back to the community. I love supporting the Women’s Fund because my donations affect many different organizations and programs that help women and girls.
The Monthlies Project is a community initiative providing menstrual health products to school-aged students and bringing awareness to the issue of period poverty and the educational inequity it creates.
The Monthlies Fund within the Women’s Fund for the Fox Valley Region, will be a resource to schools and community programs in the Fox Valley to access menstrual health products. Schools and programs can apply for menstrual health products using the link below.
The second annual An Event, Period., was a bloody success thanks to your generosity and gumption. Preliminary totals are in and we raised $12,999 in donations at the event last Thursday for The Monthlies Project. Combined with the $10,000 match that is almost $23,000, thank you! Knowing $1 equals 3 days-worth of product, we will be able to supply product for almost 69,000 days for menstruators in our community.
Thank you to all who joined us!!
