It started with a simple idea – get a room full of like-minded women together and see what happens next. What formed was a robust organization whose mission grew to support women as they navigate their professional journeys. In other words, a Foundation whose sole purpose was to Pass the Torch for Women.

Pass The Torch For Women Foundation believes that all women should have access to professional growth. The funds raised through individual donations, grants, and corporate sponsorship allow the Foundation to provide mentors and professional development for female college students with the goal of transitioning them into the workforce successfully. The student program, called Project Grow, includes over 300 female students from Ivy Tech Community College campuses throughout Indiana, IUPUI, Purdue University Alumni Foundation and Bay Path University. Today, the Project Grow Program serves over 750 students.

We serve women at all stages of their careers, Developing Professionals (early to mid-state career), Developing Leaders (on the cusp of a leadership role or currently in a leadership role), Legacy Leaders (elite professionals who share time and treasure with the Foundation). Human capital is a our number one need and we are always looking for qualified Volunteer Mentors.

Simply put, we are lighting the path for women and leaving a legacy for future generations and we want you to be a part of the movement.
