Girls Inc. is the spark that ignites the fight for the brilliant future they deserve. That's because Girls Inc. wants every girl to stand on her own two feet. To resist gender stereotypes and peer pressure. To express herself as she is. To take risks. To appreciate her body and to feel safe in the world. Because a girl who can do that has the power to break the cycle and change the world. But to get there she will need a champion. She needs Girls Inc. and in turn Girls Inc. counts on the financial support from our donors. That way, we can stand in her corner, so she will win.
A Fund For Women (AFFW) is a component fund of Madison Community Foundation. AFFW strengthens the community through grantmaking and strategic initiatives that develop a culture of women's philanthropy, empower women and girls and inspire all women to help women.
