The Cheryl Saban Self-Worth Foundation for Women and Girls was founded in 2008 by Cheryl Saban with an initial fund of 10 million dollars.


The goal was to help disadvantaged and underserved women and girls take the next step up in life. Essentially, our mission from the ‘get-go’ was to tackle the following issues: to give women and girls a chance to further their educations, to have access to affordable healthcare, to receive monetary and advisory support for new businesses, and to be protected from violence.


We’ve since added an additional 3 million dollars to the fund, bringing our total to $13 million. Hereunder is a family-tree version of our basic story line.
