Donor Profile: Heather Noble
How did you hear about ABF?
I was a founding member of the UMN Women In Technology (UMN WIT) group and found ABF through outreach activities. UMN WIT is interested in building relationships with like-minded organizations. While the target population is different there are direct connections in the work the two groups are doing.
Why do you support ABF?
I believe in the mission of ABF. I am inspired by the work the foundation does and by the girls who are courageous enough to pursue their dreams. I believe every girls should have the opportunity to explore their potential and ABF is helping to make that a reality.
What has been the most rewarding thing for you as a donor and a volunteer?
As a volunteer I have been able to witness first-hand the effort that goes into a successful grant cycle, and it is pretty amazing to see all that goes into this process. The awardees are so worthy and the women who run this office work hard to fulfill the mission of the organization. The impact is immeasurable.
What is one thing you want people to know about ABF?
ABF is doing great things for girls in our state. People should support this work in any way they can - and there are so many ways in which you can contribute! Educate girls and activity providers about ABF, become a mentor, volunteer, or donate! You can be selfish in a positive way - it feels good to do good!
