FAWE has been selected by the New York Regional Association of Grantmakers (NYRAG) as one of the 30 stories to be featured on its 30th anniversary celebration website www.philanthropystories.org.
In recognition of FAWE’s work in favour of girls’ and women’s education in Africa, the organisation’s profile was submitted to NYRAG by the Rockefeller Foundation, one of FAWE’s founding partners and a long-standing donor partner.
A feature on FAWE’s work will be showcased alongside 30 other grant projects that collectively illustrate the diversity of NYRAG’s philanthropic membership, covering societal issues including education, the environment, disaster relief and the arts. From 8 April, one new feature story will be added to the www.philanthropystories.org web site each working day until all 30 of the selected organisations have been featured on the site.
NYRAG works to promote and support effective philanthropy for the public good. Through its members, including the Rockefeller Foundation, it sustains programmes that address crucial societal needs.
