Lantern League

Lighting the Way for Women and Girls Through Education

Education is opportunity.
For young women, education can be a lifeline – giving them a voice and empowering them to take charge of their future. The Lantern League is a women's giving circle that works to break down barriers that would exclude young women from educational and developmental opportunities – particularly, financial barriers. Specifically, the Lantern League funds programs that improve the quality of life for women and girls within the greater Bay Area.

2017 Grants

A variety of organizations received funding in 2017. In total, $98,600 was awarded: $48,050 in community grants and $50,550 in PHS grants.

The Lantern League will host its General Education Membership Meeting on Monday, September 18 at 6:30 p.m. in the Valenzuela Theater. This is an excellent opportunity to explore membership with the Lantern League. Our guest speaker for this evening, Dr. Laura Ellingson, a Santa Clara University Professor and expert on women and gender studies, will lead a discussion on, Where the Aunts Are: Family, Feminism, and Kinshhip in Popular Culture. This meeting is open to everyone.
