Windermere Foundation Presents Funding to Girls Inc.
The Donation will Help Expand Girls Inc. Programming
to more Schools in Northwest Oregon and Southwest Washington
PORTLAND, Ore. – September 30, 2014 – Windermere Stellar recently presented a check at its Lake Oswego branch to Girls Inc. of the Pacific Northwest (Girls Inc.), a nonprofit organization headquartered in Southwest Portland that provides programming to low-income girls throughout the Portland metro area.
The gender-specific, research-based programming offered through Girls Inc. is proven to empower girls to realize their greater potential—providing them with the confidence and self-esteem they need to access a bright and economically independent future. Girls meet in after school groups to learn about media and financial literacy; science, technology, engineering and math studies and careers; leadership skill building and the prevention of high-risk behavior. This $2,000 donation from the Windermere Foundation will be directed to expanded programming for up to thirty girls in Northeast and Southeast Portland schools.
Windermere has a long-standing tradition of assisting low-income children and families and giving to the community. In addition to helping Girls Inc., Windermere associates participate in annual community service projects and donate a portion of every commission to the Windermere Foundation—a nonprofit organization that has raised and donated more than $2 million to programs supporting low-income children and families in the Portland metro and north Oregon coast area.
