Celebrating 10 Years in 2016
Exciting news with bragging rights! This year GFF is celebrating 10 years of making a difference in our local community!! Can you believe it? It was May 8, 2006 when we launched the beginning of our organization and website with a pajama party where we signed up our first Girlfriends, blew bubbles, dealt with an unruly chocolate fountain and shared our dreams with over 70 local women who were curious as to what GFF was all about. On that day we were filled with enthusiasm but really had no idea of the huge impact we ultimately would make on other women’s lives.
Just the Facts
To date, we have assisted over 140 local women with more than $460,000 in educational grants combined with lots of emotional support. We are currently supporting 28 adult women as they pursue higher education at our impressive educational institutions in the Coachella Valley. We are on a roll in this pivotal year and intend to keep the momentum going.
Keeping it Local
It’s really all about seeing the faces of the women we help and knowing their names. Which is why, for GFF, it’s all about local funds for local women. Seeing our grant recipients radiate confidence as they gain self-worth reinforces the fact that we are personally helping change the world. When you donate a dollar to GFF, that whole dollar goes to help women in our community attend our local schools so they can become gainfully employed in our local economy. When a woman becomes a productive citizen in the workforce we all win.
Always remember that GFF is not someone else’s charity. It is OUR charity. Grassroots and homegrown. We encourage you to stay connected or reconnect, with GFF. We look forward to many years of continued joint efforts and life-changing accomplishments.
