Review for Virginia Gildersleeve International Fund , New York, NY, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I recently joined VGIF and had the privlege this year of reading grant proposals. This review opportunity gave me a first hand experience of the need for funding to enable opportunities for small groups of women to get a chance to learns skills to enhance their chance for financial independence and to find avenues to sell their products.
I have been impressed with the mission, leadership and accomplishments of this organization.

Role:  Volunteer & I reviewed grant proposals for 2011.
