Fundraising for Girl Up

As part of the Girl Up movement, you can fundraise to support girl empowerment programs around the world. Girl Up invests in United Nations and other partner organizations around the world to directly impact the lives of adolescent girls. To date, Girl Up has raised $8.5 million for these programs and impacted the lives of more than 40,000 girls in developing countries. 

So how can you fundraise? Girl Up offers fundraising challenges throughout the year for clubs, and there are tons of resources (check them out on the right) to help you come up with fundraising ideas and strategies. Check out a step-by-step guide for creating your club's online team fundraising page through Classy. We also have personal fundraising challenges that you can sign up for at any time:

  Donate Your Birthday
Make your big day about something bigger than yourself. For your next birthday, ask for gifts that give back. Now that’s something to celebrate. Set a goal tied to the age you're turning, like raising $1,600 for your sweet 16. Create your birthday fundraising page here.

 Fitness Fundraiser
What's your favorite fitness activity? Run, bike, swim; whatever keeps you active, use it to raise funds for Girl Up. Girl Up supporters have used fencing tournaments, cross-country bike rides and Zumba classes to fundraise. Show your strength. Create your fitness fundraising page here.

Donate Your Graduation Day
You’ve reached an important milestone. In honor of your graduation, ask for gifts that give back to support girls' education around the world. Because of you, more girl leaders can be empowered to change the world. Sign up to donate your graduation day here. 

If none of these personal challenges speak to you, then create your own fundraiser.
