La Jollans Gayle Tauber and Jan Tuttleman, who co-founded Women Give San Diego, a donor circle of the Women’s Foundation of California, announced the organization’s first granting cycle since its launch in 2009. The group chose three grantees to receive $46,000 over a period of two years. Just in Time for Foster Youth, an organization that helps young women in the transition from foster care to independent adulthood, Dress for Success, which assists low-income women with career building and life management, and Supportive Parents Information Network (SPIN), which promotes self-sufficiency through money management, were the three organizations chosen to receive the grants."We are so pleased by the progress and success of Women Give San Diego over our first year,” Tuttleman said. “The impact of our granting to these great San Diego organizations will be felt far and wide. They will not only improve the lives of women and girls in our community, but will also give them the ability to help their families and, by extension, strengthen their communities. We welcome anyone who wants to join our organization and help us make a difference in the lives of women and girls in San Diego."
