Review for Jeannette Rankin Women's Scholarship Fund (JRF), Athens, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

JRF is a great example of a nonprofit focusing all of its attention on one very simple, but extremely important effort: giving low-income women over 35 scholarships so that they can further their education. Countless studies have shown that educating women has a tremendous impact, not only on the women who receive their degrees but on their children and their communities. Education is the way out of poverty, abusive relationships, and powerlessness for these women and their children. I donate to a number of nonprofits, but I can't think of a better use of funding.

I've received the most touching personal statements from women who have won scholarships I helped fund. This is truly a life-changing opportunity for these women.

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

The personal thank you notes I have received from grateful recipients of a scholarships and reading about the incredibly things these women accomplish.

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

Enable thousands of low-income women to go back to school and get college degrees!
