The GRACEDBYGRIT foundation

To develop a new generation of female leaders through programs focused on building grit with events, coaching, mentorship, and a collegiate athletics scholarship fund.


Mentorship program

The GRACEDBYGRIT mentorship program provides a place for female athletes to support one another in their athletic and academic journey. Our passionate community of female athletes are able to develop and nurture leadership skills, support one another, and build a network beyond their community. We firmly believe that collectively, we can elevate the next generation of female leaders to push through all gritty moments.

“Something happens when girls play sports – they embody the experience of not just winning, but the critical experience of losing. It’s that process of carrying on and clearing hurdles that really builds confidence. It’s an incredibly useful proving ground for business and leadership.
