In the past year Principle Quest foundation supported a number of exciting initiatives, and I am thankful for the important work accomplished by these organizations. I have the privilege of overseeing these grants, small in size, yet huge in impact for the girls and women given education, encouragement and training.

Several Westover girls are among those inspired by the programs of Grab The Torch including a visit filmed by WGBH to Harvard's Graduate School of Education to share what they've seen and learned. These grants have to be one of the best investments Principle Quest has ever made!  http://xocial.com/hes-on-fire/

This winter 15 high school girls from around NYC are braving the wintry blasts and snow to arrive for class at the relaunched Girls Academy for Financial Education. Held at the Museum of American Finance, this program of after school classes and field trips is intended to empower young minds, introduce key money management concepts and open up career possibilities perhaps not even considered.

A Report from the Principle Quest Foundation

Five grants may have been modest in size, and to paraphrase Mother Teresa, I hope these were small acts of great meaning for the women of all ages!

1. Hunter College's mentoring program has been successfully operating for several years.  Pairing Hunter alumnae/i with Hunter students, the program requires an essay to apply for acceptance into the program, and thus students are highly motivated, all of them eager to learn about a chosen industry or profession.
