Support GP for Giving Tuesday


You are why we have persevered in 2020!

Our gratitude for our GP Family, including our girls, their parents, our team, and our supporters, is immeasurable! We look a little different onsite — much smaller capacity for safety — but our family remains close to our hearts and in our minds every day. We hope for your safety and security during a really hard time for so many people. On behalf of our girls, thank you for supporting Girls Place this year!

Please fill out the form below to empower our girls to be strong, courageous, and self-sufficient.

Girls Place, Inc strives to empower girls of all racial, religious and economic backgrounds to G.R.O.W. confident, strong, and independent in order to thrive in the world around them. We accomplish this mission by providing girls grades K-12 with a safe, nurturing environment after school and during summer break. We also provide our girls with the opportunity to participate in team sports.

Our organization currently has a number of needs including general operating funds, scholarship funding, and in-kind gifts.  To find out more about supporting Girls Place, please contact (352) 373-GIRL (4475).
