about Ann Bancroft Foundation Programs
Our grant program gives Minnesota girls the strength to achieve their full potential while building confidence and self-esteem along the way. We support these girls in chasing their dreams and creating their own path.
For information on our Trailblazer Fellowship, click here.
As part of our grant programs, a girl identifies a trusted adult (teacher, coach, family friend, etc.) to be her grant mentor. This person embodies a support system who encourages and inspires personal growth.
We want to create a community where girls embrace their confidence and show the world what they are made of. In addition to the grant, a girl will have access to resources in which she can learn more about herself.
