Fundraising 101

Why is Fundraising Important?

Raising funds for Girl Up is more than just giving a donation, or even asking for one — it’s mobilizing the people around you to care about the issues that matter to you most (and having some fun while doing it). So far, with the help of Girl Up leaders, we’ve raised over $10 million. Whether you opt to raise money online or in person, we’ve got your back with these ideas to get started.

Steps to Effective Fundraising
  • Pick your fundraising challenge: Choose from one of our suggested fundraising ideas, or create your own Girl Up fundraiser.
  • Create your personal fundraising page: In your fundraising hub, you can personalize your own page and track all of your fundraising progress.
  • Start mobilizing: Tell your family and friends about your fundraising campaign or event. Ask for their support and before you know it, you’ll be raising funds and changing lives!
Where do funds go?

Club fundraising supports advancements of rights, access, and opportunities for girls globally – from right here at home, to the hardest to reach girls globally through our partnerships with the UN, and everywhere in between.

Girl Up Scholarship Fund

Girl Up is committed to bridging the gender gap and breaking down barriers everywhere they exist.
