Women's Fund for the Fox Valley Region
Girls' Grantmaking Project
The Women's Fund welcomed fourteen girls from Freedom, Little Chute, Kaukauna and Kimberly high schools for the sixth annual Girls' Grantmaking Project on March 14. The girls discussed topics important to them and their peers through facilitated conversation. They talked about the issues and problems they are facing, and what we can do together to help.
It was a powerful day with thoughtful discussions, debate and cooperation.
The group will come together again on April 25 to learn about and evaluate resources in our community and ultimately recommend $10,000 in grant funding to the nonprofit program(s) they feel will best meet the needs of girls in the Fox Valley.
Thank you to all the girls who participated with such enthusiasm and to the Ethel Keller Fund for Women for supporting this program.
