TGF collaborates with an international organization with a local focus!

The G.R.E.E.N Foundation and the National Association of University Women Inland Empire Branch (Branch) met to formulate and collaborate plans of action to help reduce health care inequities through changing existing structural barriers through advocacy and leadership training. The two organizations signed a Memorandum of Understanding on January 10, 2022, where The G.R.E.E.N Foundation would provide educational material about the COVID-19 virus on a weekly basis and the Branch would disseminate this information to its members, networks, and the Inland Empire communities.

ActNOW LA Conference 2021

Both speakers were keen subject matter experts; shared technical information in a very understandable manner that a layman could easily understand. The third speaker's presentation was both deeply informative and entertaining - very well presented. The vendor's anti-smoking and list of resources information was beneficial. Interim participatory activities were engaging, fun, and educational - kept my/our attention. The moderator did a masterful job MCing the event. Overall, the conference was very well organized and executed by a well-disciplined body of TGF personnel and stakeholders. Excellent job Ernesta!

Ernesta ranks among the most dedicated…

Of all the colleagues that I have worked with in business and the non-profit sector/ NGO sector, Ernesta ranks among the most dedicated and the most results-oriented. I have watched her grow The G.R.E.E.N Foundation from concept to reality. Coupling her business acumen, gained through years of experience as a successful entrepreneur, with her determination to impact positively on the lives of African-Americans at- risk for breast cancer has led to measurable reductions in the numbers of persons seeking early intervention. She is a 'go to' person for other like-minded start-up nonprofit organizations seeking consultative guidance.
