The Build Her Fund
For five years, the Build Her Fund has been supporting and inspiring women and girls* at People’s Self-Help Housing properties. More than just a commitment to equity and education, it is a practical way to invest in emerging ideas.
Your generous gifts have had many tangible and lasting impacts, including:
• Sending residents to the Community Leadership Institute, empowering them to advocate for their neighbors and build stronger communities. One resident winning the national Dorothy Richardson Award.
• Funding the College Tour for twelve young women to visit eight campuses, building their confidence to be the first in their family to pursue the dream of higher education.
• And right now, two residents are attending a workshop for entrepreneurs. Upon completion, they will have developed their plans, applied for licenses, and built their businesses.
When you amplify the efforts of girls and women, you not only strengthen them, but strengthen their families, and your communities. Please make your generous gift today and help Build Her!
*The Build Her Fund inclusively supports anyone who self-identifies as female, including women, girls, transgender, intersex, and non-binary individuals.
