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

Rating: 5 stars  

VGIF is a renowned non-profit organization majoring in supporting girl child and women's issues. I was introduced to VGIF by the IFUW ( in the late nineties. In the early 2000s, my organization, Nigerian Association of University Women (NAUW), Ikeja Branch applied for a grant and we were awarded $5,000 to empower teenagers. This grant turned out to be life saving because of the skills our teenagers received which impacted their career goals. I now serve as a grant pre- reviewer for VGIF. I highly recommend VGIF to philanthropists, this is a good place to impact the world.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the lives of the teenagers the grant they gave helped empower.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

increase the budget exponentially.

Role:  Volunteer & I assist in pre-reviewing grant applications.
