Women's Philanthropy is a focus for empowering the lives of women and girls. Supporting non-profit programs that help women and girls through encouragement to build lives that maintain stability, the result is dynamic transformation and social change. This is a clearinghouse for sharing information and resources, as well as a forum for promoting dialogue, exchange and feedback about critical issues that affect women's lives.
The Grandmothers want everyone to be able to attend the Gathering. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. Please donate to the Scholarship Fund so that we can extend the Grandmothers' hospitality to as many people as possible.
