Thank you to everyone who joined Chicago Foundation for Women to stand with immigrant and refugee women and girls this #GivingTuesday.
Thanks to our community's generous support, and a matching donation from Maria C. Bechily and Scott Hodes, this #GivingTuesday CFW raised nearly $39,000 to invest in immigrant and refugee women and girls in the Chicago region. This incredible support means that CFW will be able to double all three of the #GivingTuesday grants!
The votes are in, and we are pleased to announce that the CFW community has selected Chinese Mutual Aid Association to receive a special $20,000 #GivingTuesday grant to support the Young Women Warriors Project, providing mentorship and support to immigrant girls in our region.
The outpouring of support made it clear that our community is committed to building a region that welcomes and supports all immigrant and refugee women and girls.
To support this vision, CFW will also award grants of $5,000 to Syrian Community Network and Western Suburban Action Project (PASO) to support their work improving the lives of immigrant and refugee women and girls, as well as direct remaining funds to support grantmaking to immigrant and refugee women and girls before the end of this year.
Thank you for joining us this #GivingTuesday to stand with immigrant and refugee women and girls, and to continue building communities in which all women and girls are safe, healthy and have the freedom to thrive.
A $10,000 #GivingTuesday grant from CFW would support a full year of mentorship programming for 20 young women from immigrant communities through the Chinese Mutual Aid Association's Young Women Warriors Project.
A #GivingTuesday grant from CFW would support resettlement services for 180 refugee families, including domestic violence services to meet an emerging community need.
PASO would use a #GivingTuesday grant to advance its advocacy and community defense efforts around deportations and immigration policy by investing in immigrant women’s leadership.
