About Us

Our History

Sisters Giving Back was founded in 2011 by Gail Hannah who enlisted a small group of like-minded women that shared her dream to make a difference in the lives of African American young ladies. Her dream was to provide a mechanism to support girls, inspire them and enrich them to become college-bound and career-ready. In 2011, her dream was realized as Sisters Giving Back was formed as a non-profit organization and launched their first Girls Conference. Since then, SGB has sponsored a Girls Conference every year at Temple University hosting over 100 young girls. SGB has also awarded at least $6,000 in scholarships each year to young women going to college for the first time.

Our Mission

Sisters Giving Back advocates on behalf of African-American young women by providing support and life-changing experiences to equip them with the necessary tools to become successful.

To be eligible the recipients must be enrolling at a U.S. accredited college or university as a full-time, degree-seeking, first-year student in the fall. Scholarships are awarded at our Annual Black Tie Gala every spring.
