1000 Women - A Million Possibilites

The 1000 Women movement has raised more than $3.5 million since 2010 and continues to strive to offer more opportunities to transform lives. Supporters of 1000 Women are amazingly generous and selfless. They encourage greatness and remove barriers for learners. They enable success and give the tools needed to flourish in our community. Above all, they recognize the power and potential of women to accomplish amazing things.
