As we wrap up 2021, I'm filled with immense humility and gratitude for your continued partnership. This, and the bold dreams of our grantees, have fueled my first three months as Executive Director of the Ann Bancroft Foundation. 
As we look toward the new year, I remain committed and inspired by the strength and courage of young girls across our state. We know they are powerful. Our role is to provide them a safe space to dream and wield that power.
Thank you for walking alongside us as we work to inspire generosity, invest in girls' dreams, and advocate for gender equity. 
I wish you and your loved ones good health, happiness, and prosperity in the coming year. I look forward to our work together. 
Ethelind B. Kaba
Executive Director
