Donations and grants from individuals, corporations, and family foundations make our work possible. We operate with a very small part-time staff, and due to many annual gifts-in-kind, we have minimal overhead. Your gifts and donations go directly towards helping us serve more and more girls each year. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and all donations are tax deductible.
