SheGives is excited to see the Science Club for Girls’ test rocket launch in March.

SheGives is serious about supporting STEM skills.  In addition to Science Club for Girls, we also have the Boston Museum of Science’s Engineering Adventures program on our slate, which is part of its Engineering is Elementary initiative.  Engineering Adventures puts engineering curriculum in the hands of afterschool programs for kids around the globe.

SheGives connects committed, inquisitive, engaged funders with a slate of diligenced nonprofits in the Greater Boston area.  We provide members with relevant data about the nonprofits in our portfolio and an opportunity to meet directly with our nonprofits’ Executive Directors and senior staff in small settings that promote in-depth q&a’s and, ultimately, informed giving.  Giving is personally driven, but because we give side-by-side our collective impact is greater.
