The Power of 100 Girls is an organization* of 100 Founders Circle members who have harnessed their power and joined forces to make a difference in the lives of others.
*The Power of 100 Girls is a 501(c)(3) fiscally-sponsored by Hack+, a Silicon Valley nonprofit accelerator for student-led ventures.
We are seeking dynamic girls and young women who are independent thinkers and ready to make a difference in their communities and in the lives of others. Our application suggests you must at least be in 5th grade, but our founder and president was engaged at a very early age so we are opened to being convinced you are a fit if you're younger.
As a Founders Circle Member, we will review applications and decide which girls, women, or organizations to which we will grant or award scholarships. We will also meet to determine other aspects or operations of The Power of 100 Girls, including leadership, outreach, sponsorships, social media, recruitment, and any activities we host to showcase our organization, members, or award recipients.
While we welcome any passionate and dedicated applicants, it is important that selected candidates are respectful of other members and allies, committed to participating, and keeping a fair and open mind. This is not just a box to check for community service hours or to put something on your resume or college application. Instead, it is an opportunity to learn and grow together in an authentic and collaborative environment while pledging to do good and pay it forward.
Membership Fee: To become a member, there is a minimum $100 annual investment. Although there are administrative costs and expenses associated with starting and running The Power of 100 Girls, we are not currently requiring that you cover these. However, we welcome your efforts to recruit sponsors or partners who support our mission and can offset those costs.
All Founders Circle investments will become part of an award pool, with the minimum goal of reaching $10,000 (100 girls x $100). After the application deadline, members will review submissions and select awardees in agreed upon amounts until the $10,000 is fully granted.
We will meet at least monthly via virtual channels until it is safe to meet in person. During that time, we will discuss and decide upon matters related to the organization and its mission.
To apply for Founders Circle Membership, complete this application. You will then be sent a link for submitting your $100 investment, which can be paid via online invoice with a credit/debit card, ACH bank transfer (preferred), or by mailing a check to our fiscal sponsor, Hack+.
