The Founders Challenge

JRF | Dec 01 2015 |  · · · 

Join us for the Founders Challenge! We’re the Founders of Jeannette Rankin Fund, pictured here presenting the first award to Barbara Dixon. It’s exciting to still be helping women achieve their goal of higher education, particularly as the Fund enters 2016, its 40th Anniversary Year. 


To start 40 off strong, we’re coming together to match every dollar in new or increased donations up to $40,000!


Did you know that we started Jeannette Rankin Fund in a pizza shop in Athens, GA? We emptied our wallets into a breadbasket and combined that money with Jeannette’s bequest of $16,000. Here we are 40 years later asking for you to put money in the basket, too!


In the past four decades, Jeannette Rankin Fund has awarded 1,133 scholarships. Imagine how many lives have been changed for the better because of these awards. Imagine how many more we can help in the next 40 years!

In our wildest dreams, we never imagined Jeannette Rankin Fund having such an impact on so many women and families. Please join us to make the next 40 even bigger!
