We need people to help plan the event
to Women Giving Circle’s grant focus is programs that seek to inspire and
empower girls and young women to achieve their highest potential. We are writing a grant for a Makerspace for
Girls Who Code.
We need volunteers to meet with representatives
from the organization, ask clarifying questions, draft the application, etc. Our
meetings would entail: putting together a project plan; meeting with the Illinois
Prairie Community Foundation to gather information; meeting to check our
progress; and meeting to wrap things up. We can also set up a Google Doc to
help us organize our thoughts. You can
learn valuable skills like marketing, writing, and project management!
