Even with all of the craziness that is 2020, the shareholders of the Fund for Women and Girls have kept busy! Check out the below update on the Fund’s activities, and we hope to have you join us in this important work to support local women and girls!
1.) GEMS of the Valley
Unfortunately, we won’t be hosting the annual Gems event this year. We wish we could get together and celebrate the amazing women in our community, but with the current health concerns, we’ve decided to wait to get together in 2021.
- Reminisce about previous events and check out past Gems honorees here!
2.) Women Warriors Gallery
Since we can’t get together for Gems this summer, take a look back at all of the awesome women leading our community during the coronavirus crisis. The below compilation features Women Warriors from weeks 1-10, all working to make the Mahoning Valley a better place during a very difficult time.
3.) Microfunding Event is Going Virtual
Join us for a virtual event on Wednesday, October 28 where we’ll hear from 3 local initiatives that are benefiting women and girls in the Valley and cast your vote on which organization will receive a $1,500 grant!
