Inspiring and Empowering Middle School Girls

#Giving Tuesday

#Giving Tuesday is here! During the next 24 hours, people around the world are coming together to make an impact. At 4GIRLS, our Giving Tuesday goal is to raise $1,250 to send 10 girls to a 4GIRLS workshop.

Maritza, a 4GIRLS 2019 Junior Mentor, is a freshman at Cal State Long Beach. She’s also a member of the Chemistry Club and Sociology Club. She’s a pre-biology major.

You can change the future of a girl like Maritza – pictured above – by infusing her with confidence:

College has been a wonderful experience for me especially because I feel like I can support myself and truly be an independent person. 

I used what I learned from 4GIRLS when I walked into my Calculus 2 class the first day. I was 1 out of the 2 girls in that class and once class was over I was ready to drop down to Calculus 1 because it was so intimidating

But then I got a rush of “why should I?” I am a strong, independent woman. I deserve to push through it and be greater.

It’s important for girls to understand at a young age that they deserve to be heard and they deserve to persevere. I identify as a strong, biracial woman and I just want to say WOMEN RULE!

Your gift to 4GIRLS empowers young women like Maritza to access their voices and their authentic selves.

If 20 donors give today on our Global Giving platform, we have a chance to receive matching gifts from Global Giving!
