Girls learn to craft their designs, launch a fashion business, and rip the runway at Winston-Salem Fashion Week!

Girls Rising Expo

Girls and their parents/guardians gather for a fun-filled day of learning, sharing and future planning.

Sponsor LEAD

Your opportunity to help middle school girls build brighter futures.


Your gift provides a solid foundation for our young LEADers.


Join the LEADher Circle

The LEADHer Circle recognizes those who provide a solid foundation for our young LEADers as demonstrated through their levels of giving and loyalty.

Members include individuals who:

  • Make annual gifts totaling $1,000 and above
  • and/or set up a monthly recurring gift
  • and/or have given in at least 4 of the past 5 years

We have included recurring and consistent donors in our leadership circle to live out our values of equity and inclusion. Every member of the LEADHer Circle has taken a stand for our young LEADers in a community-wide partnership.

The members below are committed to the next generation’s success. Through their philanthropic actions, you give girls an example of how we care for one another.

Please join them in Choosing to LEAD!
