Be Confident, Be Different, Be Yourself

Connecticut Community Foundation has been struck both by the breadth of issues affecting girls in our region and by the broadly shared sense that certain key issues and needs – self-esteem, resilience, mentoring, responsibility, and good decision-making – are of immediate, critical importance.

To address these concerns, we have adopted the following focus to guide our Women’s Fund grantmaking: to identify, convene, and support programs that promote advocacy and skill development while fostering resilience, self-esteem, and self-respect among girls and young women in our 21-town region.
