Champions for Girls

Girls Inc. Champions for Girls are generous individuals, foundations, local businesses, and corporations who are dedicated to inspiring girls to be strong, smart, and bold. Annual gifts of $1,000 or greater qualify for the Champion for Girls designation. Every dollar contributed to Girls Inc. of Greater Santa Barbara stays in our community to support programs or provide financial assistance, allowing girls from low-income families to participate in our after-school and summer camp programs.

Champions for Girls are recognized annually by name on this page and in our annual report, and are acknowledged and thanked at an annual reception each spring.
