As we usher in the new year, we extend our heartfelt gratitude to our supporters. Whether through kind words, connections, hands-on assistance, or financial contributions, your impact on young women across the country is immeasurable.

In 2023, our commitment to increasing Grantee visibility was evident through a successful fundraiser, raising an astounding $20K for our Grantees! The event, supported by friends, family, peers, and corporate donors, was a memorable experience detailed on our website. 

Highlights from our Grantees include:

  • 🎊 Curt’s Cafe celebrated its 11th annual Gala, emphasizing community support for at-risk youth in food service and life training. 

  • 🤝 Polished Pebbles solidified a partnership with the NBA Foundation, aiming to empower young black girls.

  • 🧳 Rock The Street Wall Street expanded into Toronto, offering diverse opportunities for high school girls in math education.

  • 🏆 Mary Smith, Vice President of the Caroline and Ora Smith Foundation, was recognized as a 2023 Business Leader of Color for her work in STEM. 

  • 📖 Takiyah Wallace-McMillan's debut book, "The Color of Dance," supporting diversity in ballet. Book sales will directly fund efforts to increase the representation of dancers of color in ballet.
