Each year, WPG seeks to assist social service agencies and non-profit organizations in the Greater Houston area that support women and children. Non-Profit organizations are nominated by the membership and selected by the board of directors to receive a $1,000 Grant. The grant is typically awarded to the selected organization at our May luncheon.

Who We Are:
Bridge2Greatness, Incorporated is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit foundation designed to provide mentorship and life skill services to deserving adolescent girls.
This foundation provides exposure in the areas that include, but are not limited to: career exploration, educational opportunities, self confidence building, community service, and multicultural awareness.
What We Believe:
The mission of Bridge2Greatness, Incorporated, is to enhance educational development, promote self worth, and raise cultural awareness for at-risk and under-served girls. STEM, and STEAM.
Who We Serve:
Girls of color between the ages of 14 and 18 who reside in the Austin, Dallas, and Houston metro areas. The Foundation provides opportunities for the participants to network with positive mentors and to be personally exposed to successful women of color.
How You Can Help:
Bridge2Greatness, Incorporated, works tirelessly to provide support to at-risk and under resourced girls. In an effort to successfully execute the mission of the foundation, we graciously accept in-kind service and monetary donations which are tax deductible. Additionally, support can be provided by women of color who wish to serve as mentors. Your time, talent, monetary donations, resources and skills are all welcomed to the foundation.
Why this is important?
What Is Going On?
More than 1 in 5 girls (21 percent) ages 14 to 18 reported that they had been kissed or touched without their consent. Black girls are 5.5 times more likely to be suspended than white girls. US News & World Report.
Why are we needed:
Our girls are being identified as developmentally older than their peers and being disciplined as such. It is up to us to mentor and show our girls positive examples of women who look like them so they are empowered to be successful too.
How many have we impacted?
Through our girls and their families we have impacted over 90 young girls lives, multiple households, communities, and schools
