Inspiring messages of encouragement are enlivening the walls and outdoor spaces at the Pace Center for Girls Broward.
Pace, established in 1992, provides education, mentoring, counseling, career preparation and much more to Broward girls who have faced trouble at school or wound up in the judicial system.
Now the Believing in Girls Empowerment Project is transforming Pace’s Wilton Manors facility with artwork that furthers its mission to shape a brighter future for local girls.
The project gives community partners the chance to leave a lasting legacy of love and inspiration for Pace girls by reimagining the center’s outdoor space through a garden and a series of empowering art projects designed by local artists. Generous support from Fundholders at the Community Foundation of Broward helped make this vision a reality. Supporters include:
- Community Foundation Fundholder Cathy Donnelly, of the Castle Group, sponsored the “Dream Big” mural by Gabriela Martinez.
- The Kiwanis Club of Fort Lauderdale Charitable Fund at the Community Foundation sponsored the “I am…” mural by Caryn Frishman.
- The Cooley Bastone Gill Family Charitable Fund in Memory of Fred Bastone at the Community Foundation sponsored a plant in the Pace Gratitude Garden.
Support for the new murals and garden is just the latest example of how philanthropy through the Community Foundation fuels Pace’s important work to empower Broward girls. The Community Foundation is proud to have provided more than $1 million in grants through the years to Pace – all made possible by Fundholders who step up to create new opportunities for Broward’s girls to succeed.
