Education is opportunity. For young women, education can be a lifeline - giving them a voice and empowering them to take charge of their future. Lantern League is a women’s giving circle that pools its charitable gifts to fund educationally-oriented projects and programs for women and girls within the greater Bay Area. With just a few meetings a year, our group is ideal for philanthropic women who are short on time and want to make a big impact for local non-profits. In 2017, we were the recipient of the Outstanding Philanthropic Organization Award by the Association of Fundraising Professionals Silicon Valley Chapter. The generosity of Lantern League members has enabled us to support dozens of organizations since 2006 with more than $1.4 million in grants.
A variety of organizations received funding in 2020. In total, $87,200 was awarded: $43,500 in community grants and $43,700 in PHS grants.
