The 1000 Women

Who are the 1000 Women?

“The fabric of a community is most often woven by the women who live in it.”

Since 2010, donors to the 1000 Women:  A Million Possibilities movement have demonstrated a profound commitment to empowering individuals through education.  We treasure the women, men and organizations noted below who have invested $1000 or more in the 1000 Women movement.  Cumulative giving to the movement is recognized by gem levels:  diamond, emerald, ruby, sapphire, amethyst, pearl and opal. 

*Note: NorQuest College strives for accuracy in recognizing its donors and partners. Please contact the Department of Advancement with any discrepancies within this list.
