The FAWCO Foundation's Backing Women Campaign
is pleased to announce a $10,000 Matching Grant Program
sponsored through the generosity of
The de Groot Foundation!
The challenge has begun for FAWCO Member Clubs to fundraise for the Target Project - Hope Beyond Displacement. All FAWCO Member Clubs are encouraged to participate in this special opportunity that could DOUBLE your club's donations!
The monies raised at club fundraising events held after September 1, 2017, are eligible for the Matching Grant. The de Groot Foundation will MATCH dollar for dollar (up to $1,000 per club) the amount your club raises and donates to the Target Project!
The Matching Grant Program will continue until the end of the FAWCO Interim Meeting in March 2018 or until the full amount of $10,000 has been disbursed.
All of us working together will help us reach our goal of $125,000!
Your Donations Will Fund:
GIRLS' EDUCATION - the enrollment of 100 girls in school each year and 120 girls in the SuperGirls after-school enrichment program.
WOMEN'S VOCATIONAL TRAINING - 180 women will learn income generating skills.
WOMEN'S LEADERSHIP - participation of 160 women in the Women's Empowerment 101 program and 160 men and youth in gender-based violence training; 20 will continue on in Training the Trainer workshops; 90 women, men and youths will participate in the Leadership in Action program.
