Second Annual Kick Off The Holidays Party

We hosted our second annual fundraising gala at Davio's Boston on December 6. We were thrilled to welcome more than 250 people, including five of our seven 2019 Women's Empowerment Scholarship recipients. Thanks to everyone who joined us and also those who supported us financially from afar.  

Without the generosity of our supporters, we would not have made such a significant impact in our first 18 months as a foundation. 


About Us


Our Mission

As a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization, The Women's Empowerment 

Scholarship (WES) serves to empower females by encouraging and enabling them to pursue higher education. Our foundation provides educational 

grants to women throughout New England while paying special attention to women entering into one of many male-dominated career paths, including, but not limited to, science, technology, engineering, finance, and law. In aiding 

women financially, the WES team aims to propel their careers 

and allow them to shatter any and all glass ceilings and stereotypes.
