This organization provides me with a scholarship and a mentor in the field I hope to enter--they didn't just give me a scholarship check and said "here is your money and let's take a picture for our press release". The Aqua Foundation has served as a family to me and has allowed me to spend more time focusing on my studies and a little less time working at my 40+ hour week job and for that, I am forever grateful!

The Aqua Foundation for Women is true to their message of empowering, educating and fostering South Florida's lesbian, bisexual, and transgender women communities. With their support my organization, The Women's Theatre Project, has developed a strategic alliance with The Pride Center at Equality Park. Together, we are bringing a nationally recognized anti-bullying campaign to South Florida. The Women's Theatre Project is grateful to the Foundation and their donors for allowing us to leverage our relationships and funding to support this much-needed and unique programming.

With the support of Aqua Foundation, The Women's Theatre Project will present Ugly Ducklings, a national campaign designed to reduce bullying and harassment of LGBTQ youth in June 2011. This program was developed by Carolyn Gage and Hardy Girls Healthy Women of Maine and provides a full weekend of workshops, a documentary film presentation, and educational materials. Discussion, interaction and Q&A sessions are led by award-winning lesbian feminist playwright, director, and activist – Carolyn Gage.

I support this organization because I know 100% of the proceeds go back into the community. The Scholarship and mentoring program is well thought out. With each scholarship recipient getting a mentor from the community it gives them a much higher chance for success in their chosen field. It also promotes community awareness and activism for future generations. We all learn from life experience. Hopefully the scholarship recipients will turn around and become mentors in the future. We can promote awareness and education by setting a positive example. This Organization has everything accounted for. If you have a question the staff always makes the time to answer it. I have been in the office doing administrative work. While in the office I have met a few of the recipients. It is wonderful to know they are not just left on their own with the scholarship money. I have see class schedules and I know that success is really being encouraged. I personally know women that mentor and they really do take to time to check in with their mentee. Whether it be squeezing in a lunch or calling in the morning to check in. I remember Aqua Girl flying in film makers for the Miami Gay and Lesbian Film Festival. I remember being in the audience for Q & A sessions. Many of these films were extremely educational and eye opening. Some films being about homeless gay youth in NY. These films raised awareness and definitely made me open my eyes. Speaking with the film makers educated me further. Overall, The Aqua Foundation for Women encourages awareness and community activism. It gives me a place where I can volunteer. A place where I know the services are going to the right place.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Being able to see women grow more aware the issues We Face as GLBT women. When we raise awareness we become stronger. It is impossible to fix a situation if people are not aware of it. When we are educated we all become stronger.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Really help foster an amazing future for GLBT women. Doing something positive for the community creates a cycle. Everything we do to help will be multiplied over time. It only takes a few people to start a movement. Look how far we have come.
