WHERE THE FUNDS GO

Your support through fundraising is a tremendous gift to our organization and girls in New York City, allowing us to expand our scholarship sites and reach more girls.

Currently, more than 60% of the girls in our program come from low-income communities. Funds raised help support Girls on the Run NYC efforts to provide scholarships and subsidy support to girls to participate in our life-changing program, empowering them to be confident, healthy and joyful. Your contribution will help Girls on the Run NYC maintain our commitment to serve all girls, regardless of financial need.
