This fund was established by Sandy Castek to support programs that help local, single mothers build their self-sufficiency. It is Sandy’s wish that this fund serves as a reminder to all single mothers that they can succeed and that they don’t have to do it all alone. There are many others who want to help. Distributions from this fund are determined through the Foundation’s competitive grantmaking program and must be support for organizations and/or programs that help women with children build self-sufficiency. This could include scholarships, emergency support to overcome crises that are preventing her from getting to work or school, and/or health and wellness programs that support the emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being of single mothers.
