New Hampshire Women’s Foundation presented its inaugural SHE Change award to the New Hampshire Community Loan Fund at the annual Women Building Community Luncheon on October 11.
The award was presented for the Community Loan Fund’s Business of Child Care project.
In presenting the award, Women’s Foundation Director of Grantmaking Ellen Koenig said the Community Loan Fund clearly stood out as “an organization which supports the values of the N.H. Women’s Foundation and uses creative solutions to address complex problems facing women and girls in New Hampshire.”
The Business of Child Care project helps child care and early education directors better understand and manage their centers’ finances. The project includes business self-assessments, group and one-on-one training, and stipends.
