Grant Recipients 2010

Our grant recipients work everyday to help remove obstacles that stand in the way of success for women and girls. Their dedication to helping women and girls find the inner resources to overcome barriers of abuse, neglect, poverty and fear makes the Women’s Fund proud to be part of the work they do. Providing financial support for programs serving women and girls is a core strategy of the Women’s Fund -- we strive to invest in her future.

In July, we announced our fourth year of grant recipients:

  • Capital District Women’s Bar Association
    The Domestic Violence Legal Connection Program provides information meetings to victims of domestic violence seeking assistance with family court and matrimonial matters.

  • Domestic Violence and Rape Crisis Center of Saratoga
    The Financial Literacy Program Program focuses on prevention by providing financial, goal setting and decision making information to give high school girls better understanding for future positive life choices.

  • Interfaith Partnership for the Homeless
    The Pathway to Success: A Life Skills Workshop Series helps homeless women develop the skills needed to find employment, including resume writing, job application, interview skills and building self esteem.

  • League of Women Voters New York State
    The Second Annual Girl’s Day Out event has 7th grade girls participating in a full day of activities based on growth, leadership and decision making. The goal is to develop the skills needed to build healthy relationships and gain control of life situations.

  • Northeast Health Memorial School of Nursing
    The Life Support Fund for Nursing Students allows nursing students who live below the poverty line to request one time grants to help with emergency situations, such as a car repair, so a life problem does not sidetrack their education.

    The Work Readiness Certification Program provides services to women and girls engaged in sexual exploitation by giving them the needed skills to obtain employment.

A total of $42,000 was awarded to these six impressive programs focused on helping women and girls achieve success.
