Thank you for supporting Strong Women, Strong Girls Boston in the 2012 Giving Common Challenge!
This year was the first-ever Giving Common Challenge, a new effort of The Boston Foundation to raise awareness of and support for nonprofits giving back to the Boston community. From October 10th at 8am to October 11th at 8pm, individuals donated online to any of the nonprofits with a Giving Common profile. Check out Strong Women, Strong Girls’ profile.
During the 36-hour donation window, there were over 60 prizes available for nonprofits, totaling $150,000. The Challenge raised a total of $1,073,911 from 6,904 individual gifts! SWSG is proud to be part of a generous Boston community.
Last year, Strong Women, Strong Girls engaged 650 girls throughout Boston. 91% of parents reported an increase in their daughter’s self-esteem, and 86% of mentors saw an increase in girls’ college and career aspirations. This year, we will be serving 720 girls and launching a new chapter at the University of Massachusetts-Boston.
Your support during the Giving Common Challenge will play a significant role in helping us grow and broaden our impact throughout Boston. Thanks for joining us in the challenge!
