Many social and economic barriers hold back Mississippi women every day, limiting their opportunities to succeed. Our mission is to help them thrive. Because when women thrive, so does our state. That’s why we award grants to programs that drive social change – like decreasing unplanned pregnancies through medically accurate, evidence-based sexual education, or helping mothers graduate in order to provide a better quality of life for their children.
Last year we gave $675,000 in grants to local organizations across the state. Since 2012, we’ve given $2.2 million in total grants, changing the lives of more than 5,900 women and sparking real change in our communities.
