Give back this holiday season

Thank you to those who donated on #GivingTuesday! Our amazing supporters gave almost $800 to help us empower girls in Central Illinois!

We aren’t ready to stop there though! Our goal is to raise $5,000 this holiday season to give the gift of self-confidence through Girls on the Run program scholarships.
Donating to Girls on the Run is quick and easy through our Facebook page, and now Facebook is covering all fees associated with their donate button on nonprofit pages.
We hope you will consider using your “giving power” to increase her “star power” by making a gift this holiday season on our Facebook pagewebsite, or mail a check to 907 Clocktower, Springfield, IL 62704.
