West Palm Beach, FL – The Executive Women of the Palm Beaches Foundation, Inc. is kicking off its 2023-2024 season by mentoring an up-and-coming nonprofit, led by young women.

On August 29, 2023, professional women are invited to network at The Palm Beach Post, a sponsor of Executive Women’s events, and learn about Ta Ta For Now, a non-profit started by two, local students.  TaTa for Now is led by Jupiter High School 10th grade students Jessie Baxter and Holly Milsom and focuses on providing quality and well-fitted undergarments to school-aged girls in Palm Beach County, who are clothing insecure. This goal of the initiative is to boost the self-esteem of young women, by providing for a very basic need that is often overlooked.

Guests to EWPBF’s Season Opener are encouraged to bring a new package of underwear to donate to Ta Ta For Now, an awarded program of Philanthropy Tank. Philanthropy Tank is dedicated to the implementation and sustainability of student-run and student-driven social impact programs that address issues facing local communities, while developing future youth leaders. The nonprofit organization is led by CEO and past EWPBF President Amy Brand.

“Jessie and Holly were recognized by Philanthropy Tank because of their demonstrated capability for leadership and addressing a need,” Brand said. “Showcasing their work is a natural fit for Executive Women, where our mission includes mentoring, supporting and facilitating the next generation of female leaders.”

To date, Philanthropy Tank student-led programs in Palm Beach County and Baltimore have impacted more than 300,000 lives; more than 1,000 students have participated in the student programs; and more than $700,000 in grant money has been awarded to nearly 70 student-led projects with a social impact program. Some of the student programs have become independent nonprofit organizations. (www.philanthropytank.org)
