(November 29, 2004) � The Women's Foundation of the Genesee Valley has given a group of teenage girls a rare and unusual treat: dole out thousands of dollars to worthy programs that help other young women.
Three years ago, the Women's Foundation created the Girls Grant-making Committee. Teenage girls review grant proposals from area organizations that help young women, then award grants, which range from about $8,000 to $11,000.
The award money comes from ticket sales from 'Voices of Experience,' an event for young women hosted by the Women's Foundation. Professional women explain how they advanced their careers and what it takes to be successful. "
