Together, Our Impact Is Strong!

 

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. But we need your help. Gifts of ALL sizes make a difference. Together, our impact is strong!

Have you considered joining our Sustainer’s Circle by establishing a recurring donation? There is no minimum amount required for weekly, monthly, or quarterly giving. Consecutive giving is the backbone of the Annual Fund and girls in our local community rely on your generosity. 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.

With the support of our donors, sponsors, and partners:
• We are able to offer FREE afterschool programs to girls in grades K-12 at our centers in Albany and Schenectady

• Our five-year, college prep program, Eureka!, is also offered 100% FREE to girls from anywhere in the Capital Region

• We are able to direct 82 cents of every $1 to programming

If you prefer to give by credit card or ACH, please use our secure giving form to make your gift online and/or establish a recurring donation. Gifts made by check can be mailed to our administrative offices at 962 Albany St., Schenectady, NY 12307.

Do you (or your spouse or partner) work for a company that matches employee gifts? You may be able to double (or triple) the value of your contribution! Contact your Human Resources Office to find out if your gift can be matched.
