SisterFund announces $40,000 grant to Girls For A Change

This November, SisterFund awarded the largest grant in its history — $40,000 — to support Girls For A Change, a youth development organization empowering black girls and other girls of color to advance their 21st Century skills and visualize their full potential. This award will fund the Girl Ambassador program, which prepares 9th–12th grade girls of color for 21st century jobs, especially in the STEAM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics). Participants will work with top employers, build their skills and widen their professional network.

"I am full of gratitude for the SisterFund and all they have done to support black women and black girl initiatives,” said Angela Patton, CEO of Girls For A Change. “To have black women come together in this way and support organizations who are intentional about advancing black girls is priceless to me. These women have jumped over unimaginable hurdles to be the successful women they are today. I want my girls to be like them.

“Beyond receiving the grant, I am most excited about being in this amazing sister circle and giving my girls a chance to benefit from having these women in their lives. A girl can't be what she can't see, which is why this partnership is so important."

SisterFund is a giving circle that provides a forum for philanthropic-minded African American women to pool their time, talent, and treasure to support organizations that are working to transform the lives of African American women and girls in the Greater Richmond Metro Region.
