About The Orchid Foundation

The Orchid Foundation is a non-profit with the mission of mentoring underserved high school girls. We choose girls that are excelling in their academic and/or extracurricular pursuits and help fill the resource gap presented by their socioeconomic backgrounds. Our “Orchids” are star athletes, honor students, poets, humanitarians and feminists packed into 14-18 year old powerhouses that deserve the same opportunities and access as the top ten percent. Thanks to the generous tax deductible donations we receive, The Orchid Foundation provides our girls with college scholarships, year round tutoring, career day field trips, we do community service to give back every year, we immerse ourselves in the arts learning about classical literature and art from experts in field, we partner with fitness experts to turn our girls into lean, mean, learning machines, but at our core we are about sisterhood. At The Orchid Foundation we bond with our girls in both individual and group settings to create a sense of unity and support.
