Our Pillars


We encourage and provide financial support for girls as they pursue educational endeavors. The Pretty Brown Girl Foundation has awarded over 100 scholarships to Black and Brown girls across the country.


We believe in promoting growth through sharing the Experiences of others and providing direct opportunities intended to improve the well-being, knowledge, and skills to achieve their dreams.


We create moments of Exposure where Pretty Brown Girls can expand their minds, their reach, and their understanding of all the world has to offer as Change Agents within their families and communities.
