The Juthica Stangl Fund

Juthica Stangl founded Shadhika in 1992. Give to the Juthica Stangl Fund and provide transformational funding to support Shadhika in giving $12 million directly to local partners and Shadhika Scholars on the frontlines of a groundswell of change in India and in reaching 1,000 Scholars by 2030. By generously committing a minimum of $10,000 within 3 years, you can give the security and the tools that Shadhika, its local partners, and the Shadhika Scholars need to strategically address power structures that underpin gender injustice locally.

Join the Scholarship donor circle to provide scholarships to the most deserving of young women at Shadhika’s partner sites. To participate, donors give $1,700 per year for 3 years. A college degree typically requires 3 years of study and $1,700 is the average cost of a full Shadhika Scholarship. Scholarship funds cover the cost of school fees and tuition, room and board, transportation, books and school supplies, tutoring, a living stipend, and a technology package (computer, Internet, and computer literacy classes). Scholarship donors have a unique opportunity to make a tangible difference in the lives of Shadhika Scholars. You will also have exclusive access to content and opportunities to connect with our staff and the young women we serve.
