Goodman Community Center | International Women's Day

Imagine a world where ALL girls believe that they have the right to:

  1. Be themselves and to resist gender stereotypes.
  2. Express themselves with originality and enthusiasm.
  3. Take risks, to strive freely, and to take pride in success.
  4. Accept and appreciate their bodies.
  5. Have confidence in themselves and to be safe in the world.
  6. Prepare for interesting work and economic independence.

Girls Inc. is working to making that a reality. On this International Women's Day, make a gift to support girls in Madison as they grow as leaders.

    “Girls deserve a space where they can feel able to be open and vulnerable, especially when they have other girls around them to support them.”

    A Loving Offer to Match Your Gift honor of sweet Lucy

    A couple in our local community whose daughter Lucy passed away recently will match gifts up to $24,000 through the end of March – Women's History Month.

    "We had hoped to raise Lucy with the same values and strengths that Girls Inc. provides for girls throughout our community. Since losing her, we have looked for ways for her impact on our lives to be translated to our community, and we are honored to work with Goodman to recognize her in this way."
    – Lucy's parents

    Please make your gift today, in honor of Lucy or in honor of a special girl in your life – or simply to help ensure more girls in our community get to become strong, smart and bold in Girls Inc.

    Can you think of a better investment?
