This past weekend, the MG+M Women's Forum in California co-sponsored and participated in Dress for Success San Francisco’s fundraising yoga event, Stretch for Success.

Held virtually this year, this annual event raises money for Dress for Success San Francisco, an organization that helps empower women to achieve economic independence. Since 2005, Dress for Success San Francisco has served over 8,500 Bay Area women by providing a network of support, professional attire and development tools to help them thrive in work and in life. Last year, Dress for Success San Francisco was able to provide 2,400 items of professional clothing donations, 720 hours of job search assistance, 400 hours of financial literacy training, 780 hours of online career coaching, and over 700 meals to families in the Bay Area.

This year, Stretch for Success raised nearly $34k for Dress for Success. In addition to co-sponsoring the event, the MG+M participants were the top peer-to-peer fundraising team, raising over $6,700.

The MG+M Women’s Forum is proud to support Dress for Success in its mission and looks forward to continued involvement with the organization in years to come.
