GIRLS CAN’T WAIT!
A girl who can stand on her own two feet has the power to break the cycle of poverty and change the world. But to get there she needs a champion. She needs you. This is an urgent and critical time–our girls can’t wait. Please let them know YOU are in their corner. As a Champion for Girls you are helping to break the cycle and impact of poverty.
Will YOU Become a Champion Today?
The Champion for Girls Campaign for Growth is a movement to nearly triple the number of girls served by Girls Inc. of Memphis. In order to dramatically impact the girls of Memphis we must build our infrastructure– financial and facilities.
When you give we will accomplish the following strategic priorities by 2021:
Grow the number of girls receiving the Girls Inc. Experience from 1,040 to 3,080.
Invest $5.1M in renovation and new construction projects in 38107, 38111, 38126 and 38127 in order to more boldly advocate for girls.
Implement a funding model to support growth and sustainability.
How much will it cost?
We are committed to raising $8M ($5.1M in capital expenses and $2.9M in growth investments) to meet our goal of serving more girls in Memphis.
What will this project mean for Memphis and the Mid-South?
At Girls Inc. of Memphis we have been helping girls build life skills that drive their aspirations for more than 70 years. The success of this project will make it possible for thousands of girls each year to beat the odds and realize they are strong, smart and bold. Their lives will be better and in turn our communities will be better for it.
Here’s a recent television news spot documenting our plans for the Frayser campus and our quest to raise the funds to make it happen.
