As a member of Girls Inc. Champions for Girls, you allow more girls to participate in life changing programming that awakens the hidden potential inherent in each girl.

By connecting girls with trained and delivering research-based curricula, Girls Inc. provides girls with the education, encouragement and guidance they need to succeed in life as healthy, educated, and independent women.

PARTNER $1,000 to $4,999

Every gift in the Champions for Girls giving society will be used to help identify girls’ strengths, and promote a growth mindset where both achievement and the ability to learn from mistakes are celebrated. To provide the distinctive Girls Inc. Experience, we must start early and stay late in a girl’s life, investing in her over time. It is an expensive process but our life-changing outcomes are priceless.

ALLY $5,000 to $9,999

Your gift of $5,000 supports the importance of creating spaces that are “girls only,” where their worries, their strengths, their ideas and dreams are taken seriously, and they feel the safety and freedom to envision a positive future.

The Girls Inc. Champions for Girls giving society brings together individual philanthropists from the community who are dedicated to inspiring girls to be strong, smart, and bold. This network of women and men are part of a community of advocates for Girls Inc. of Pinellas, who are engaged locally and nationally to create longlasting, positive changes.

Kathleen Peters, Pinellas County Commissioner, is a Champion for Girls Inc. Pinellas

"I think every single girl needs a Champion and I can tell you it is really an honor and a privilege. I think every girl needs the support of the community to help them rise up and be successful."

- Kathleen Peters

Patricia Clynes, Chief Financial Officer for The James Museum of Western & Wildlife Art is a Champion for Girls Inc. Pinellas

"Growing up I was blessed to have a working professional mom who was my role model and now that I have a daughter, I want to be that same great example for her. While raising my daughter I realized that unfortunately not all girls have the same experience as I did and I started looking for local organizations that supported this cause and this is how I found Girls Inc. Their mission and vision immediately touched my heart and so I became involved because I also want to be a part of changing these girls' lives. I want to inspire them to shine, to be strong, smart and bold. I want them to know that it's okay for them to be a little loud, because their voices are important."

- Patricia Clynes


Members of Girls Inc. Champions for Girls enable the organization to increase the number of girls who have the opportunities to develop their special strengths, break past barriers, achieve their full potential, and help others, as they were helped, along the way.
