We are a 501©(3) non-profit organization that invests in the leadership potential of women and girls. By listening, mentoring, educating, funding, and providing other development opportunities, we are empowering the next generation
WIL Charities envisions a community of girls and women who are ready to lead.
For the past several years WIL Charities has participated in a one-on-one mentoring program with The Olmsted Academy South (OAS), an all-girls public middle school.
In 2020 WIL Charities raised $5,826 that provided OAS with 850 water bottles and masks (masks donated by Humana), to enable students to return to school in a safe environment.
In 2021, WIL Charities focused on "Finding Your Voice" which included special programming for building confidence as well as funding academic curriculum/activities.
One of the most impactful things we accomplished happened in 2022 when WIL Charities funded the Summer Academic Program for OAS. This program resulted in sixteen 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students receiving focused attention on gap areas to prepare them to progress to the next grade level.
"To say thank you is simply not enough to reflect the gratitude we feel at OAS for WIL Charities making the program possible. Statistics prove that when a student repeats grade levels in middle or high school, she is more likely to drop out of school by age 16. This grant did not just provide funding for a program, it provided an opportunity for girls to rewrite their story and change the trajectory of their lives." - Anita Moore, Youth Services Center Coordinator, Olmsted, Academy South
