2021 Caring for Women Campaign Update
Thank You for Helping us say “Not Here, Not our Kids!”
On behalf of the Women’s Fund, we wanted to sincerely THANK YOU for your support and helping us stand up and say, “not here, not our kids!” Together, you have continued to help us make a difference in the lives of women and girls facing sexual exploitation and families impacted by trauma. With your donations, we were able to reach our goal of $50,000, with a grand total of $57,240 with gifts from 127 donors. Because of these dollars, we were able to grant out almost $40,000 back into our community in efforts to fund and fuel our partners’ work to stop sexual exploitation, assist victims and prevent the occurrence of exploitation, and bring
trauma informed care training to Kandiyohi County.
