We are happy to announce exciting positive changes for Empower Her! Our Board concluded that we could better fulfill our mission we needed to fully integrate into the community rather than holding programs at a physical space of our own. We will build upon those community relationships and forge new ones with our goal being to hold our programs and social events around the community at libraries, schools, churches and businesses.
Without the overhead costs of a physical space, we will also be starting a GIRLS (Growing, Inspiring, Respecting, Learning, Succeeding) Scholarship Fund. This scholarship fund will provide two scholarships per academic year; one for an eighth grade student seeking private education and one for a high school senior attending college. See our scholarship section on our website for more detailed information.
Donations can be specified for general programming or the GIRLS Scholarship Fund.

Empower Her, Inc. will continue to reach out to various community organizations including schools, libraries, churches, non-profits and businesses to collaborate on bringing our programs to their constituents.

Empower Her has also kicked off the scholarship fund this year with the hopes to increase the amount for next year. Two scholarships will be given each year.

Empower Her, Inc. is fundraising through events and the annual fundraising drive to secure enough funds for both general costs as well as building up the GIRLS Scholarship Fund.

The Executive Director is also working through current community organization relationships and creating new ones to bring Empower Her's programs to the community.

Empower Her will gauge interest in the scholarship fund through donations that are specified for that purpose. We will also track interest and progress through the amount the applications increase annually.

Empower Her will know that progress is being made with our programs in the community when we gain more partnerships. Empower Her will also survey organizations and participants to assess program interest and effectiveness.

Empower Her has released the overhead costs of rent and electricity by leaving the rented space which has freed up funds for program costs and the scholarship fund. Empower Her has released the application for the scholarship for this year (2018) and has already gotten interest and applicants. We will continue to advertise it for students for upcoming years.

We have also made new community relationships and are already bringing our programs to them.
