Girls Giving Back (GGB) is a youth philanthropy project of TTCF’s Queen of Hearts Women’s Fund (QoH). GGB members are young women under eighteen who are interested in shaping their community through philanthropy. By facilitating their own youth grant cycles, the Girls learn how to fund raise through local events, evaluate grant proposals, and select as a collective a local youth nonprofit to receive a grant. In a supported environment, these young women learn the intricacies of philanthropy and develop a unique set of tools that prepares them to grow into effective community changemakers.

GGB has had yet another successful year. Thanks to our leadership team, local business partners, and all of  who demonstrated support at three fantastic fundraising events, GGB has completed their third annual grant cycle.  We are happy to announce that the recipient of the $2500 GGB Grant was Lake Tahoe Music Festival’s Youth Mentoring Program. This free program connects high school mentors with grade school students to provide music education and increase grade school participation in music events including rehearsals, orchestra performances, and concerts.

Join us in congratulating our always impressive GGB!

If you are interested in participating in GGB or know a young woman who would benefit from the project, contact Alison Elder at or
