| July 3, 2019 | 0 Comments

The San Diego Women’s Foundation (SDWF) announced that it will award $243,000 to local organizations during its annual Grants Celebration on June 5. This will be the highest grant awards in SDWF’s 19-year history.

SDWF will hold the 19th Annual Grants Celebration, Images of Impact: Snapshots of Community Change, to honor the impact of women in philanthropy and award grants to these organizations that combat human trafficking in the San Diego region.

This year’s grantees, selected through a comprehensive vetting process and a final vote by all 220 SDWF members, include:

  • Children’s Legal Services
  • Free to Thrive
  • GenerateHope
  • North County Lifeline
  • Project Concern International: Trafficking Prevention Collective

“Human trafficking simply should not exist in our community,” said SDWF Executive Director Katie Sawyer. “We are proud to partner with these phenomenal organizations who will help survivors get their lives back on track and prevent others from becoming victims in the first place.”

The event will be held from 6 to 8 p.m., Wednesday, June 5 at the Museum of Photographic Arts in Balboa Park. The evening will commemorate the new 2019 grant recipients, highlight the successes of last year’s grant cycle and celebrate the $3.5 million in grants that have been awarded to 96 nonprofit programs in San Diego since the establishment of SDWF in 2000.

Tickets for the 19th Annual Grants Celebration cost $35 per person. For more information, visit
