I’m celebrating my birthday a bit early to raise funds for the Young Women’s Giving Council! Help us reach our fundraising goal to support women and girls in Chicago!
Fundraising for the Young Women's Giving Council helps to unify the voices of individual women and amplify the potential for meaningful impact in our city and for marginalized groups. The Giving Council supports smaller organizations that are dedicated to investing in, empowering and educating young girls of color to be leaders in their own lives and communities.
Since 2008, the Young Women’s Giving Council has awarded 29 grants totaling over $136,000. And, last year we surpassed our goal by collectively raising $16,500 to be granted to three local groups making a meaningful difference in the lives of women and girls.
