At this year’s virtual Fund for Women and Girls’ Microfunding Event, we learned about several inspiring local initiatives. Thank you to all the fund shareholders who were able to join us and to the organizations that shared their work with us.
At this year’s event, shareholders were wowed by….
Warren City Schools and their program, “Girl Power: Connection, Community, and Service,” which received the most votes and earned them the top prize $1500 grant!
The Fund for Women and Girls was also able to increase funding, and beyond the winning proposal, the Fund also awarded small grants to the other finalists as well!
Congratulations to the below organizations that each received $250!
- Finer Things Academy
Project: Remote Learning for Students in Youngstown
- Girl Scouts of North East Ohio
Project: Girl Scout STEM Journey Program
- League of Women Voters Greater Youngstown
Project: Valley Vote Initiative
