Give to SWSG Pittsburgh
Every gift to SWSG Pittsburgh helps empower more women and girls in Pittsburgh to dream and do.
Why Invest in Girls and Women?
We all understand that girls and women are up against tremendous obstacles to their personal and professional success. However, funding for programs that elevate girls and break down barriers often falls short.
For example, less than 5 cents of every foundation dollar goes to programs for girls and women. Within that funding, nearly 40% is sent overseas–twice the rate at which other international giving is directed. Beyond that, less than 2% of multi-figure gifts, which have an immense impact, support women’s causes. But we can change this!
Simply put, community giving is critical to making sure programs for women and girls continue into the future.
Studies show that when you invest in girls and women, the entire community benefits.
On average women reinvest 90% of their income back into their families and communities. By donating to Strong Women, Strong Girls, you will be part of a community working to help girls and women to realize their inner strengths, explore their passions, and develop the skills needed to become leaders. Here’s a few ways you can make a difference
