501©(3) non-profit organization with a mission to provide mentoring, support, education, training, and development opportunities for women and girls in the community.
For the past three years WIL Charities has participated in a one-on-one mentoring program with The Olmsted Academy South (OAS), an all-girls public middle school.
Last year 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. A number of students needing coats, gloves, socks, etc. were also provided these items to stay warm during the holiday months.
This year, WIL Charities is focusing on "Finding Your Voice" which will include special programming for building confidence as well as funding academic curriculum/activities to enable successful progression and completion of middle school. COVID created many challenges for successful completion of coursework, from virtual coursework to schedules for onsite learning days.
Click on the video below to find out some additional information about OAS and the impact WIL Charities has had on the school:
Our goal this year is to reach a target of $6,000! We can offer broader funding of programs to more students at Olmsted Academy to enable coursework completion, growing skills in other areas such as arts and community to truly make a difference in the lives of these young women.
$25 provides snacks for after school activity for all girls
$30 can send two students to a community specific event (Stage One, Louisville Ballet, Center for the Arts, etc)
$35 can fund a book club for the girls and/or special event (Cinemark: A Wrinkle in Time, etc)
$50 provides books specific to program lesson (supporting core curriculum--Math, Science, English/Writing Skills)
$50 also pays for basic school supplies for the girls (pens, pencils, notebooks, backpacks, etc.)
$150 pays for transportation for all students to a community event
