The Women’s Giving Alliance (WGA) awarded a $15,500 grant to Be Free Lake and $31,749 to E3 Family Solutions. Both organizations will be addressing mental health and prevention of “at-risk” behaviors for middle and high school students.
“It’s pretty incredible to work with such a well-educated and diverse group of ladies, and even more amazing to see how quickly we’ve grown and the impact we have made in three short years.” noted Sandy Simmonds, 2018 WGA President.
The Women’s Giving Alliance awards annual grants through a competitive application and review process. This initiative of the Community Foundation of South Lake was launched in March 2014. The not-for-profit Community Foundation of South Lake County provides leadership to enhance the quality of life for women and children in South Lake County by identifying community needs and seeking philanthropic support as permanent funding to meet those needs. The foundation was formed on June 30, 1995, as the result of an agreement between the South Lake County Hospital Tax district and Orlando Health.
