The Iron Maidens Stay Strong Scholarship
Grace Outreach is a Bronx based nonprofit that works with women to further their education and gain financial independence. Through competitors’ fundraising efforts, we created the first annual Iron Maidens Stay Strong Scholarship to assist low-income students at Grace Outreach in paying for their college tuition.

In 2016, we smashed our goal of $20,000, raising $30,000 through CrowdRise! We look forward to supporting even more women pursuing higher education this year.

Go here to donate to the 2017 Scholarship!
