It's Giving Tuesday! Why do we give?

Since 2004, Levé’s mission has been to lift up the Portland community through partnership and philanthropy. As an all-volunteer, all-female organization, we support each other in the work we do for our partner and in the goals we set for ourselves. We all have our individual reasons for why we give back, but this year we decided it was especially important to support an organization that empowers the next generation of emerging female leaders. Girls Inc. strives to inspire all young girls to be strong, smart and bold, and this why we give.

Girls Inc. wants to support every girl in realizing her dreams. With a variety of programs, mentorship opportunities and systems of support, Girls Inc. girls are given a safe space to explore different career paths and connect with role models across fields. On Girls Council, young girls spend a year participating on a leadership team where they’re able to engage with community partners to foster their own philanthropic interests. In Girls Groups, young girls learn about media literacy to better understand the impact of media on our society, and in the Eureka! program girls explore STEM topics such as robotics, DNA research, and forensic science.

Growing up it’s easy to feel alone and unsure of what passions you should pursue. The Levé ladies are supporting one another and our partner to strengthen a community filled with empowered female leaders. This is why we give. You can too. We’re celebrating this partnership and the work of Girls Inc. at our annual party for a purpose on December 2nd. Join us this Saturday - buy your ticket and get a second free! Not able to attend?
