Help us grow.

In 2019, She's the First is pursuing our first million-dollar funder. The support from our largest donors to date, many of whom are recognized below, has prepared us for the next level.

Funders who've made multi-year commitments of unrestricted funds were key to getting STF where we are today. We invite you to join their ranks!


Funder Spotlight

She’s the First receives generous funds from Nuria, a global natural beauty brand, on a multi-year basis. Thanks to their support, we can invest in first-generation graduates and our operations as needed.


She’s the First receives unrestricted, general operating funds from the NoVo Foundation on a multi-year basis. This enables us to plan ahead and apply funds where needed most. If more grantors took NoVo’s approach, the nonprofit sector would be stronger for it!

Estée Lauder Companies Charitable Foundation provides a well-rounded grant to support all three of STF's programming areas: Scholarships, Global Citizenship, and Collective Impact for Quality Girls' Education.

American Express not only matches employees’ donations to our scholarship fund, but the Foundation also provides grants for the STF Summit and awarded us a grant in 2017 to support marketing efforts.


Our biggest event of the year.

Mingle with our most influential supporters and launch She’s the First into our next decade of impact!


Held annually in August, STF Summit is a conference for hundreds of our students, along with 5,000+ Facebook Live viewers.

The event attracts influential speakers who drive conversations around achieving gender equality through the education and empowerment of women and girls.
