Amy Irish, the founding member of Rochester Women's Giving Circle, said, "Our mission is to provide economic independence for women and girls. So, we're looking at things like keeping girls in school, reducing teen pregnancy rate, programs that offer training, and leadership skills for women."
Rochester Women's Giving Circle was founded seven years ago. Organizers say they've given away more than $600,000 in grant money to non-profits since their foundation.
