Lenny Zakim Grant for Saheli

The Lenny Zakim Fund

THE LENNY ZAKIM FUND AWARDED  $625,000 TO 53 GRASSROOTS ORGANIZATIONS

Saheli was fortunate to be one of the recipients. Funds will be used to expand our reach to immigrant women from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal and other countries and provide culturally and linguistically responsive services to deal with domestic violence.

Jude Goldman, Executive Director of the Fund said in a Press Release….

“As we enter a time of significant uncertainty, with increased signs of discrimination and active bigotry, supporting the individuals and communities most affected has become more vital than ever.  That call to action speaks directly to the mission of The Lenny Zakim Fund (LZF). Today that mission is reinforced as we announce fifty-three community-based social-justice organizations that will receive $625,000 in grants in 2017.  All we present at the Award Ceremony on February 6th.” Saheli’s Rita Shah and Katy Hurley, will receive the award on behalf of Saheli. Thank you Lenny Zakim funders.
