Esteemed colleagues,

At G4GC we strive to cultivate spaces rooted in healing, inclusivity, and safety. Despite the fact that we were not able to convene in person, it was important for us to curate a gathering for our community of stakeholders  invested in centering and supporting girls, femmes and gender-expansive youth of color. Even if it was virtual.

We are so grateful to each of you who attended our virtual gathering, Branches of Reciprocity: Growing Ancestral Philanthropy with Girls* of Color on June 22. If you were not able to attend, we have included some links below. We also encourage you to pay special attention to our Theory of Impact, and Annual Report, which give insight into what we have been up to this past year, and where we are going.

Some of the highlights from the convening include: getting to know our G4GC team and Advisory Board members, a discussion about G4GC’s Theory of Impact, our work over the past year and the essential work ahead, and the announcement of the New Songs Rising Initiative, in partnership with Seventh Generation Fund for Indigenous Peoples!

Here are some important links:
