In the summer of 2014, the nonprofit organization, Pass The Torch For Women Foundation was formed with a vision of a world where ALL women are equitably represented at all levels of leadership in business and government. The mission of the organization evolved to address the needs of women throughout their career lifestyle. The funds raised through individual donations, grants, and corporate sponsorship allow the Foundation to provide mentors and professional training for female college students with the goal of transitioning them into the workforce successfully. The student program, called Project Grow, included over 150 female students from Ivy Tech Community College, IUPUI, Indiana University and Bay Path University. Today, the Project Grow Program serves over 750 students.
The Pass the Torch for Women Foundation is creating a unique and powerful community galvanized by a shared belief in the value of women’s leadership. Our approach in supporting women throughout their career pathway with mentoring relationships, networking, and leadership training sets us apart from other organizations. Our mentoring program allows you to connect with mentees not just in your area, but from around the nation too.

Pass the Torch for Women Foundation believes that all women should have access to professional growth. We are a community that passes the torch through mentoring, connecting, and investing in women at all stages of their career.
