#GirlHero Giving Circle

Become a #GirlHero

The #GirlHero giving circle is a community of empowered women (and men) who are championing and investing in the lives of girls around the world to become leaders and changemakers. Your gift of $5,000 or more, per year, to Girl Up, enters you into this exclusive community that fosters female comradery in our fight for gender equality – for every girl, everywhere.

Becoming our #GirlHero means giving a girl the skill-set necessary to be a part of the next generation of female leaders. It means helping a girl build a movement, lobby policymakers, mobilize her peers, generate dialogue and raise funds to support girls. It means giving her the confidence to stand up, speak out and take action on behalf of girls – with impact resonating from right in her own school and community, to across the nation and around the world. Far and wide a #GirlHero giving circle member’s reach is vast and impactful. For those who stand with us in this movement, there is no rest until we achieve equal rights for every girl. Because when girls rise, we all rise.
