Allegheny County Girls as Grantmakers program continues to make an impact!

June 18, 2008
In 2005, the JWF collaborated with the Women and Girls Foundation of Southwest Pennsylvania, the FISA Foundation, and Eden Hall Foundation to fund the Allegheny County Girls as Grantmakers’ project. A diverse group of girls (8th to 10th graders) was selected to learn about philanthropy, set grantmaking priorities, develop and market their own Request for Proposals, run workshops for potential grantees, present and vote on proposals and manage grants they give to other girls in the community.
