champions for girls


The Girls Inc. Champions for Girls program brings together individual philanthropists from across the U.S. and Canada who are dedicated to inspiring girls to be strong, smart, and bold. This national network of women and men are part of a community of advocates for Girls Inc. who are engaged locally and create long-lasting positive changes. Every year, Champions for Girls  help us provide more girls with the tools they need to develop their special strengths, break past barriers, and achieve their full potential.
