Improving the Lives of Girls & Women

The Patrina Foundation has been at the forefront of accessing inequities in our society through a gender lens.  Founded in 1990 by Lorinda de Roulet, Patrina supports in-community organizations focused on improving the lives of girls and women in the New York City greater metropolitan area through education, enrichment, job training, and social services supports.  When lifting up the girls and women, the entire community benefits. For 30 years, the Patrina Foundation has supported grassroots organizations and pilot programs as they break new ground addressing  the unique needs of the girls and women they serve.
