YOU MADE HERstory!
On #GivingTuesday, December 1, 2015, you helped #G2WG partners raise $30,000 that will go toward supporting women and girls in our community. THANK YOU!
Make every day #GivingTuesday by prioritizing women and girls in your philanthropy throughout the year.
We want to thank the local businesses who took the time and care to assist us in our #G2WG initiative:
Don Muller Gallery
Florence Pie Bar
Maureen Sullivan Media Group
Odyssey Book Shop
Skin Catering Spa
The Sierra Grille
Village on Main Salon
We are five organizations helping local women and girls to succeed in life, school, and work. This #GivingTuesday, for the first time, we are raising our collective voice to increase support for local women and girls.
Why? Because together, we are a stronger and louder chorus for change. Only 7% of philanthropic dollars go toward programs for women and girls. While support is shrinking, the need is growing. Especially at the intersection of race and class. Women and girls of color are more likely to be victims of violence, more likely to be high-school drop outs, and more likely to live in poverty than any other group in our region. But it doesn't have to be this way. On #GivingTuesday, December 1, we joined forces to ask our communities to prioritize giving to women and girls.
