Congratulations to the Boys and Girls Club of Southwest Virginia. They have been awarded $10,000.00 to support their Project Learn program, which is an essential component of our overall programming at the BGCSWVA and is implemented five days a week at our 9th Street Club in southeast Roanoke. This ongoing program provides local youth with affordable after-school and summer programming that increases academic achievement and personal development so that youth stay in school, graduate high school on time, and go on to post-secondary education and rewarding careers.
Effective 12/31/2013, the IRS has determined that the Foundation is tax exempt and qualifies as a 501 (c)(3) organization.
Congratulations to the Women’s Global Empowerment fund. You have been awarded a $18,000.00 grant to further your work in Uganda. WGEF offers women access to microcredit loans, business development training and educational initiatives. The focus will be on three areas: leadership development, literacy and health initiatives.
