Prancing Ponies Foundation 501(c)3 mission is: 

Creating Women Leaders One Girl at a Time

Your donation helps us reach our goal of sending 10 girls to our 2019 Leadership Acceleration Academy!

There are millions of organizations that service the ‘cradle to college’ path however, very few focus on the ‘college to career’ transition which is most critical to ensuring girls are prepared to step into leadership roles within corporations as quickly as possible. 

We provide 3rd year university STEM and high school girls the training, information and skills to successfully bridge their college to career transition and position them to accelerate their careers into leadership roles in corporations because we need Women Leaders Now! We provide education and training in skills that would normally take girls 5 – 8 years of their careers to learn.  We no longer want our girls to waste this time, so we train them before they graduate college on:

  • How to run an effective meeting
  • Preparing and give presentations
  • Managing a budget and analyze a P&L
  • Negotiating their salary
  • Self-brand management
  • …and receive monthly mentoring for the rest of their lives

We believe we can change the numbers of Women represented in corporate leadership roles from a decrease of 25% in 2018 to an increase of 50% in the next 10 years. Our dream is to see 250 Women running S&P 500 Companies. 

The Prancing Ponies Leadership Acceleration Academy is free to all girls who are accepted.  This includes housing, stipends, technology/software, instructors, transportation, meals and other critical items.  Your support is not just an investment in the Prancing Ponies mission but to the world’s future Women leaders as well! 

Donate today and watch your investment grow into future women leaders!


“Keep doing what you’re doing.  Changing lives.  I see it like this, I can feed 1 person, but helping create and develop a young woman into a successful giving person, she could feed hundreds using her skills.”

You’re feeding the dreams of girls hungry for something better in their lives. Something that would be completely out of their reach without mentorship and guidance.”

“Keep Pushing, we’re so proud of you…Everyone has haters! Use it as energy to keep helping people.”


“I just wanted to thank your team for creating wonderful experiences for young girls to develop their self esteem.  (…) As a single parent of two beautiful young girls, I commend you for starting a foundation to improve young girls self esteem and to help them to believe that they can achieve anything when they set their minds to it!!  Everyone has their own inner critic that tells them they are not good enough , not smart enough or not skinny enough etc …..So thanks for empowering young women and giving them an opportunity to ignore their inner critic and be the shining, strong and independent people that they are capable of becoming!!! Just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate what you are doing for the youth of today!!”- J.T.

Champions Mentoring Program (launching Feb 2020): Fun and intuitive, it will allow mentors to register and connect with our girls. Detailed profiles on mentors and the areas in which they can help will make it easy to create strong mentor/mentee relations.

As a graduate, we help with company placement, provide life-long mentoring, and champion their accelerated career growth to Leadership. 
Online Leadership Academy for high school girls (launching Sep 2020): This high school club takes the curriculum from our summer Academy and brings it to classrooms and after-school programs providing practical skills and tools to encourage girls to take on leadership roles in college and later in their chosen careers. The online academy allows us to reach thousands of underserved girls nationally.
