Raised for Nonprofits

SheNOW Women's Charity

Teaching young women self-worth, life skills and college readiness.
With interest in our program growing (emails and messages received daily) we see a large demand for services. Unfortunately, we don't have the funds to support the growth of our school-based program, and financial assistance is essential in order to help this venture expand. We are in an aggressive fundrasing campaign now - needing to raise $200,000 to bring our program into a DISD school struggling with female graduation rates, teen pregnancy and low self-worth among female students. Through grants, sponsorships, and donations, our goal is to launch school-based programs in inner city and low-income areas, beginning in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. The programs will focus on training and mentoring young women who can't normally afford to attain such important life skills and tools for success. We want to give young women in these communities the ability to focus inward, to achieve their goals, to break the cycle of disappointment, and to climb out of their current financial and socioeconomic situations. As young women, these key years (grades 7-12 and college) are filled with relationships (both good and bad), familial & societal pressures/expectations, and large life-altering decisions. By partnering with them during such formative years to provide positive mentoring relationships and alternatives to the status quo, we can set them up to have a better chance at success in life down the road.
