I've been involved with HGHW for many years now and I stay involved because their vision will help girls and women lead more healthy lives. The leadership stays focused on the goals and consistently creates and runs programs that are achievable, fun and make palpable differences in girls lives. I know when I contribute to HGHW my money is used wisely. I don't know who gets more pelasure from giving - me or the girls!

It's all about great leadership. Many organizations have strong missions to create changes but HGHW excels because of great leadership that includes collaboration. My husband and I have been supporters and know the most is made of our support.

As one who has funded Hardy Girls Healthy Women for work on our philanthropy's initiative to change the cultural acceptance of violence against women and children, I can tell you that Hardy Girls is an exceptional grantee to work with. Not only does the organization do the work they propose to do, they involve girls themselves and community collaborators to help achieve their goals and vision. The fact that all of the staff are young women is even more exciting and great role modeling for the girls they serve.
