Champions for Girls

The Girls Inc. Champions for Girls giving society brings together philanthropists from across the U.S. and Canada who are dedicated to inspiring girls to be strong, smart and bold. This network of women and men are part of a community of advocates for Girls Inc. who are engaged locally and nationally to create long-lasting, positive changes.

Members of Girls Inc. Champions for Girls enable girls to participate in life-changing programming that awakens the hidden potential inherent in each girl. By connecting girls with trained mentors and delivering research-based curricula, Girls Inc. provides girls with the education, encouragement and guidance they need to succeed in life as healthy, educated and independent women.
