Annual support from the Lawrence Family Foundation will support the growth of women’s sports in North America
NEW YORK, NY March 7, 2019 – SheIS announced today that the Lawrence Family Foundation has committed to become the first Visionary Partner, a distinction given to first year supporters of SheIS who demonstrate through financial and promotional support a dedication to growing women’s sports.
The Lawrence Family Foundation is a charitable foundation which focuses on local organizations championing diversity and inclusion issues, social programs for youth, and arts programs. The first year of partnership with SheIS will anchor around a series of matching campaigns to happen later in the year, which will highlight the same core areas of focus as they relate to sports.
SheIS Executive Director, Jillian Svensson, said of the new partnership, “We are thrilled to have the Lawrence Family on board in support of this important work to amplify equality in the sports space. I have known the family for many years, and they have always been strong advocates for diversity and inclusion in the sports space. We could not be happier to have them involved in SheIS as our first Visionary Partner and look forward to a long road ahead of collaboration.”
More details around the matching campaigns are to be shared in the coming months.
Founded in 2017 and launched to the public on May 1, 2018, SheIS was established with a mission to use the power of sports to create a future of, by, and for strong women. It focuses on the positive attributes of sport to acknowledge and elevate women and celebrates those who are collective powerhouses and unwavering cheerleaders for their fellow athletes at all skill levels. The SheIS Collective includes leaders from every major sport and represents the first time in history that all these sports leagues and organizations have stood together in support of one cause.
