It REALLY DOES take a village...
Since 2011, support from local businesses, service clubs, and like-minded donors have helped girls discover they ARE enough just like they are, they DO bring gifts to the world no one else does, their circumstances DON'T control their future, and they ARE growing into someone even more amazing.
Your gift, large or small is critically important in helping girls believe and live our motto, Every Girl Matters!
Small one-time donations, long-term large-scale supporters, special fundraisers and business partnerships provide the revenue needed to offer our programs on a donation basis. While we do have a suggested donation for each
activity, families pay what they can (often $0) and no one ever turned away for financial reasons. A traditional guided backpacking trip to the Red River Gorge in Kentucky can easily cost $500+. Our suggested donation for that 7-day trip is $125. A $25 donation covers the cost for one girl to attend M.A.D. Club for one week. Generous support from like-minded donors keep costs low
and insure our programs are open to any eligible girl, regardless of their financial situation.
Your donation matters! Your donation makes a difference! And we promise to spend it wisely.
