Women's Initiative for Self Empowerment (WISE)

Pay it Forward with Kindness

Help us "Pay it Forward with Kindness" this year, by contributing to our goal of $5,000 for our 2016 Give to the Max campaign to support the GGAL Scholarship Fund.

The GGAL Scholarship Fund directly supports the continuing education of our high school seniors and college student participants. The current scholarship amount for participants is $250. This money can be used to pay for books, school supplies, tuition, and/or independent living expenses.

Our participants are joining the fundraising team this year – they will be completing a Compliment-A-Thon on Saturday, November 12th from 12:00 – 1:00 at Rosedale Mall in Roseville, MN. The purpose of this Compliment-A-Thon is to empower our participants to spread positivity and bolster self-esteem within our community, one person at a time. To learn more about the Compliment-A-Thon, please click here.
