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 annual Iron Maidens Stay Strong Scholarship to assist low-income students at Grace Outreach in paying for their college tuition.
In 2017, competitors raised $35,000 in scholarship money. In total, we have raised over $65,000, and supported 10 women pursuing a higher education. We hope to match or exceed last year’s incredible show of support.
