2023 Annual Campaign

Life changing. That’s what Girls Inc. of the Greater Capital Region is to so many girls in our local community. That might seem like a bold statement, but it’s true and it’s what our purpose is built upon: inspiring all girls to be strong, smart, and bold.

To continue providing Capital Region girls with the skills and knowledge needed to grow up healthy, educated and independent, we need your help. When you make an unrestricted gift of ANY amount to the Annual Campaign, your gift can be used immediately and where it’s needed most. Together, our impact is strong!

With the support of individual and corporate donors, Girls Inc. is able to provide FREE after school programming and FREE college and career readiness programming to more than 400 girls each year.

Give Year-Round

We would not be able to sustain the important work that we do without loyal supporters who keep Girls Inc. at the forefront of their philanthropic priorities year-round. It’s easy to set up a recurring donation using our secure online giving form.
