Your Support Inspires All Girls to be Strong, Smart, and Bold!


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 can’t do it without you…

With the support of our donors and sponsors:
• We are able to offer FREE afterschool programs to girls in grades K-12 and Girls Inc. Eureka! is also offered 100% FREE
• We are able to serve more than 400 local girls annually
• We are able to direct 80 cents of every $1 raised to supporting programming

Gifts of ALL sizes make a difference. Together, our impact is strong!

With our thanks, Girls Inc. of the Greater Capital Region donors whose annual giving is greater than $1,000 (cumulatively) will receive national recognition.
