You put the POWER in girl power!
Thanks to generous support from so many, and lifted higher by an extraordinary match of $19,100 from a special donor family, this year’s Monica Terez Girl Power Fund soared to $38,200. This brings to $122,400 the total amount raised over three years.
Every dollar has been invested in standout programs that build strength and can-do confidence in girls. See below for detailed information about each.
Monica gave so much in service to others, and she was such a champion of girl power. We are deeply grateful to all of you who have joined forces with us to build up the next generation of women leaders!
