Charitable Giving to Women & Girls
Did you know that philanthropic support for women’s and girls’ organizations remains a small share of overall charitable giving at only 1.9%? While slightly up from recent years, support is still at a great deficit.
Did you also know that despite making up nearly half of the U.S. workforce, women are still vastly underrepresented in the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) workforce? In 2019, women made up only 27% of STEM workers, up from 8% in 1970.
These are just a couple of reasons we need your support!

Men vs. Women in US Workforce
Single Mothers Need Our Help
More than 80% of children in single-parent homes live with their mother.
The disparity of income between single mothers and single fathers means that women are 36% more likely to live in poverty than men.
Dr. CGK Foundation, Inc. is committed to serving Greater Houston Area single mothers, 18 or older in low-to-median-income households, looking to improve their quality of life through higher education that culminates with a degree from an accredited college or university.
