The WGIRLS INC was founded in 2007 by a small group of professional women in New York City who came together to donate their time, energy, and talents to assist disadvantaged women and children across NYC and, in times of international crisis, around the world.
Today the WGIRLS INC is an international organization with over 500 active volunteers and chapters in the Bay Area (San Francisco), California, Red Bank, New Jersey, Washington DC, Los Angeles,California, Long Island, New York, Miami, Florida, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, New Brunswick, New Jersey, New Orleans, Louisiana, Manhattan, New York, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, London and Perth, Australia.
Each of the WGIRLS chapters is united under the mission to provide underprivileged women and children with the support and resources necessary to achieve health, happiness, and the ability to lead productive and successful adult lives. Additionally, in times of international crisis, the WGIRLS extend support outside the local community to address the global need.
WGIRLS chapters host several fundraising events throughout the year. Proceeds support customized WGIRLS programming within the local community and/or are donated to local, pre-selected, 501 C3 organizations that share our vision to support underprivileged women and children. The WGIRLS are proud to have supported more than 60 organizations over the past several years through volunteerism and donations of goods, services and grants.
In addition to fundraising, the WGIRLS have implemented customized programming to meet several outstanding needs in the community. Programs include outreach to disadvantaged children during the holidays, meals for guests of the American Cancer Society’s Hope Lodge, and Project (G.L.A.M) Granting Lasting Memories which outfits thousands of economically disadvantaged girls for their high school prom.
The WGIRLS welcome new volunteers who are interested in joining one of the chapters across the country. If you are interested in becoming a member, please contact us. We look forward to meeting you!
