Ways to Contribute

We profoundly impact the lives of thousands of girls every year. Indeed, for more than 70 years, Girls Inc. has been working to meet the unique developmental and emotional needs of all girls (Kindergarten-12th grade). We do this through education, advocacy, and through our research driven programs. But we need to do more. And to do that, we do need your support. Your financial gift can have life lasting impact!

At Girls Inc., approximately 65% of girl members come from families with annual incomes at or below $30,000. Each day approximately 150 girls are served at our Schenectady and Albany after school programs. Our after school programs are offered free of charge. Your contribution affords young girls the opportunity to learn new skills and gain confidence throughout the year.

On the flip side, it is financially impossible to offer free programming during the summer and school vacation weeks as well; therefore, our vacation week programs are offered on a sliding fee scale to make it more affordable for families to attend during this time. Furthermore, many girls are able to receive scholarships to attend our summer programs. These scholarships are made possible only by the contributions of our generous donors. Donors like you. You may contribute to Girls Inc. in any amount that is feasible to you and your family. You may also choose to donate on an annual, monthly, or quarterly basis. We are able to accept checks, money orders, and credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover).
