Patsy Takemoto Mink Education Foundation
Established in 2003, the Patsy Takemoto Mink Education Foundation aims to carry on some of Mink's most ardent commitments: educational access, opportunity, and equity for low-income women, especially mothers; and educational enrichment for children. In 2020, the Foundation will offer five Education Support Awards of up to $5000 each to assist low-income women with children who are pursuing education or training.
