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.
