Programs: GirlGov

Mission:
The mission of the Women and Girls Foundation (WGF) is to achieve equality for women and girls, now and for generations to come. Our vision is for women and girls in Pennsylvania to have equal access, opportunity, and influence in all aspects of their public and private lives. To realize this vision, the organization’s active work is focused on developing the female leaders of tomorrow and advancing women’s rights today through advocacy, coalition building, and grantmaking.
Results:
Since we began operations in 2004, WGF has made nearly $1 millon in grants to advance womens' rights at the local, regional, state, and national levels. We've engaged over 300 young women in civic action through our GirlGov program, empowering them to take an interest in making their voices and concerns heard on a political scale. Through our partnership with the Post-Gazette and State Treasurer Rob McCord, we've increased female participation on corporate boards and government appointments. And, every day we are activating women (and men!) as donor-champions for the rights of women and girls for generations to come.
