The SkillBuilders Fund makes grants to enhance the capabilities of women and girls to realize their full potential, with emphasis on programs and services in the Kansas City region. This private foundation is especially interested in innovative means to help women gain self-sufficiency, build their capacity to function in our society, and become responsible citizens. The Fund favors projects that provide educational opportunities, build entrepreneurial skills, and cultivate and foster women’s leadership. Proposals from new as well as traditional organizations will be considered.

Thank you to all who were able to celebrate the Life and Legacy of Marjorie Powell Allen with Rainy Day Books on September 24, 2017. See event photos here.
