Girls in the Game receives grant award from Qlarant Foundation

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
AUGUST 5, 2020

Girls in the Game received a $10,000 grant from Qlarant Foundation to support its Baltimore programs. Members of the Board of Directors for Qlarant Foundation held a virtual reception for the 2020 Grant Awards on July 15. Qlarant originated as a quality review organization for Medicare and Medicaid and now provides services in fraud detection, waste and abuse, and quality improvement. Qlarant Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the organization, makes grants in the areas of health care and health equity.  

During the event, each of the grantees were highlighted in a pre-produced video segment (available on Qlarant’s website) and given the opportunity to present a brief summary of their organizations’ work. They also were asked to speak to some of the “unexpected positives” each non-profit has experienced while adjusting to COVID-19. 

Julia Pines, Girls in the Game Baltimore City Manager, shared the “unexpected positive” of bringing together Girls in the Game participants and supporters across the country through virtual programs and events such as National Teen Squad Hangout for Teen Squad members in Baltimore, Chicago, and Denton and a mixer for Auxiliary Board members from Baltimore, Chicago, and Dallas.
