Women & Girls' Fund Celebrating 15 Years by Honoring Local Women

December 1, 2015 - A celebration of the Women & Girls' Fund's 15th anniversary in 2016, A Toast to Women is a pay it forward campaign to honor 1,000 special women who have made a positive impact in the lives of others.

Every $15 donated in honor or memory of each woman that has made a difference in your life “toasts” a mother, wife, sister, daughter, friend or relative; acknowledges the positive impact they have made in your life; and supports your neighbors.

By making a gift and honoring someone special to you, you will help another woman in your community. To commemorate that honor, the Fund will send a certificate to you to share with your honoree(s). We ask that you kindly submit an electronic photo, preferably in jpeg format, of your honoree(s) to Julie Matthews at julie@mainstreetfoundation.org. Your honoree(s) will be acknowledged at a future Women & Girls' Fund event.

At the Wonder of Women (WOW) event on March 30, 2016, all honorees through then were included in a special presentation. To view the presentation, click here.

Since its establishment in 2001, the Women & Girls’ Fund at Main Street Community Foundation has awarded nearly $350,000 in grants to improve the lives of thousands of women and girls in the communities of Bristol, Burlington, Plainville, Plymouth, Southington and Wolcott.
