Why I Give:
Did you know that 1 in 6 girls will not finish high school? And that students living in low-income families are 5x more likely to drop out of high school than their financially secure peers?
As a professional woman, long-time donor and board member, I am happy to know that there is an organization focused on a safe environment for girls to explore who they are while being surrounded by positive role models who help them navigate many social, economic and gender barriers.
Girls Inc.’s research-based programming focuses on the development of the whole girl. Girls Inc. girls are eager to learn, are successful in school and more likely to graduate, and:
Nine out of 10 Girls Inc. girls care about doing well in school, like learning new things and try to find out more about the things that interest them.
89% of Girls Inc. girls find STEM classes interesting.
90% of Girls Inc. girls are hopeful about their futures.
Please join me by investing in Girls Inc. today so that all girls in Santa Barbara can grow up healthy, educated, and independent.
