Supporting Women + Girls

Every year, Yardi’s international offices select hundreds of nonprofits to receive grant sponsorships. Several of the grant recipients focus their services on women’s advancement.

The World Bank reports that investing in women is a key factor in ending poverty and boosting economic growth. PLOS One research also indicates that investments towards women’s health contribute to positive societal development.

In honor of International Women’s Day, we would like to highlight a few Yardi grant recipients that emphasize women’s well-being.

Girls Inc. inspires “all girls to be smart, strong, and bold.” The organization partners with schools to help girls learn to value themselves, take risks, discover and develop their inherent strengths. Nearly 90 percent of expenses are directed towards programming.
