Girls Inc.

Inspiring all girls to be strong, smart and bold


2018 Goals:

Our first-ever Capital Campaign is complete and was successful in reaching its goal of $2 million. The Nashua center’s renovation at 27 Burke Street will be complete at the end of September 2017. The girls (and staff) are very excited to move back in. Our goals for 2018 are to continue to reach more girls through our centers and outreach programs, expand our programs into high schools across the state, grow our Bold Futures Mentoring Program and to continue to provide full, nutritious meals to all the girls in our centers.

Fundraising Events:

Our biggest fundraiser is our Girls Inc. Auction held every April. It begins online and then culminates in a Live Auction Gala. Our Women of Achievement Brunch held in October celebrates the achievements of three honorees. Our Online Holiday Auction starts on Cyber Monday after Thanksgiving and raises money to purchase gifts for every girl that attends the program.

Giving Opportunities:

Girls Inc. is always accepting donations through our website,, by mail or telephone. Other giving opportunities include event sponsorships, item donations for our spring auction and holiday auction, and planned giving. We also have business partnership opportunities for Young Women’s Leadership programs in high schools in your community.

Volunteer Opportunities:

Guest speakers — If you have an interesting career (women in STEM, here’s looking at you) or an inspiring story to tell, contact us about sharing your wisdom with the Girls Inc. participants as a guest speaker. Event helpers — We put on several major events throughout the year and always need help running the show. Support volunteers — Got a weeknight open every week or a stray hour free now and then? Talk to us about coming in for occasional help with homework, meal prep or whatever your area of expertise may be. Mentors — To make a deep impact on the life of a local girl, consider becoming a mentor. After being trained by Girls Inc. staff, you will be partnered with participating students for one-on-one and small-group bonding on site at your local Girls’ center.
