Spring2Action on April 17 to Empower Women!

4 Apr

Dear Friends,

Every once in a while we have an opportunity to transform everything; to make dreams happen, and lift out of poverty and isolation more women, families and communities than ever before.

This opportunity is a chance to make a real impact. And you are a critical part of this effort.

On Wednesday, April 17th, our community will come together for 24 hours of unprecedented giving to support the important work of Alexandria charities through Spring2ACTion. The event is hosted by ACT for Alexandria and ACTion Alexandria dedicated to help Alexandria’s nonprofits solve critical problems.

Help us meet our goal to raise $55,500 on April 17 to provide 30 entrepreneurship scholarships for immigrant, refugee and low-income women.

Each scholarship includes 60 hours of business start-up training, Entrepreneur Training for Success, 30 hours of mentoring, coaching and support services, networking opportunities and access to micro-loans of up to $5,000 per start-up.
