3rd Party Fundraising Ideas

If your business or organization is having a fundraising activity, dress down day or golf tournament, you can make a life-changing difference for girls in-need across Durham Region by donating funds to support Girls Inc. of Durham.  Please contact us and find out how we can help promote your event while raising funds for Girls Inc.  We’ll provide you with our Community Fundraising Kit that has everything you’ll need to plan a successful event.

A community fundraiser is an event organized by a volunteer, community group or business to benefit Girls Inc. of Durham, but is not an official Girls Inc. activity.  Acting independently and with Girls Inc. of Durham approval, third party fundraisers support us in many ways.  Not only are you raising funds to empower girls to be strong, smart, and bold, but you are also raising public awareness of Girls Inc. and the important work we do.
