Smart Girl is a past grantee of The Women's Foundation of Colorado. In particular, they have supported our annual Girls' Leadership Council program by serving as an applicant and participating in a youth led grant making process and site visit. Smart Girl really understands girls and young women; our high school aged Girls' Leadership Council participants always feel respected by Smart Girl and are impressed by their transparent and authentic interactions with young women. It doesn't matter if you are a girl or young, Smart Girl gets you! They are a pleasure to work with and we are lucky to have them as a community partner.
