Providing young women with opportunities for a lifetime
SpringBoard! is making a difference in the lives of women in southern New Mexico. Started in 2003 by a group of women to address the needs of low-income women, SpringBoard! members recognized that women are the nurturers of our communities and critical decision makers in their homes-decisions about healthcare, parenting, cars, homes and other family investments.
In order to make the key decisions, it is essential for women to have an education and/or opportunities that often require financial support. Therefore it is a mission of SpringBoard! to share their resources with those who are less fortunate.
To date, SpringBoard! has distributed more than $14,455 in grants and scholarships to women in southern New Mexico. Each scholarship recipient has a vision of how an education will benefit herself, her family and her community. Most recipients are in truly meager financial circumstances. The opportunity for an education is a dream of a lifetime.
Those dreams have been fulfilled because of a few visionary women funders who believed they could make a difference in the lives of other women.
