We need your help to keep our 100% success rate in guiding girls to college. Help us send every one of our girls on to college.

And just in case you need a bit more convincing, here are 3 more reasons to give:

  • Your donation supports the efforts of 150 women writers who work one-on-one with our girls, in mentoring sessions, at workshops and in schools. Collectively, they contribute 2,000 hours of volunteer time every month.

  • WriteGirl helps 350 girls each year. Your donation gives us the staff and the resources we need to produce high-quality educational workshops and materials to inspire girls to succeed.

  • As one of only 12 organizations in the country to receive a 2013 National Arts & Humanities Youth Program Award, presented in November by Michelle Obama, WriteGirl is worthy of your investment.
