When Women Come Together, Young Lives Are Changed

Women In Philanthropy members want to make a real and lasting difference for youth in Santa Cruz County and we do this by funding school-based initiatives to help youth succeed in school and in life. Last year's contributions connected over 550 K-8th grade students with opportunities in the arts, literacy, reading comprehension, math and science. From developing their reading skills through one-on-one mentoring sessions to competing in regional math and science competitions, Women In Philanthropy invests in innovative approaches to learning, putting youth on the right path to be successful in life.
