Hello! I’m Shelley, and I’ll be blogging about news and stories related to the Shamrock Foundation’s activities and mission. You might have seen our mission statement on the home page. The four of us who make up the foundation’s board of directors–we’re all women–are passionate about fulfilling our mission to empower women and children. We don’t limit our funding to one geographic area; instead, we support organizations working all over the United States and across the globe, too. We also provide funding to organizations working on numerous issues that affect women and children–from clean water and sanitation to human trafficking to financial access. Mostly we’re just looking to support organizations that are doing really great work to empower women and children, wherever they might be and whatever they might focus on. On the blog, I’m looking forward to sharing what we’re doing and what we’re learning. If you’d like more information about the Shamrock Foundation, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
