How legacies help us build brighter futures for girls and young women 

We are equipping girls and young women with skills for life. Girls and women, young and old, can tell you about the amazing memories they have made at GFS. Generations of females have had fun, made friends and developed the confidence and skills they need to make their way in the world. 

GFS believes that every girl and young woman has the potential to do anything. Our mission is to help them fulfil that potential by providing a supportive and fun place for them to meet friends, learn more about themselves and grow in confidence.  

All legacy income we receive goes towards nurturing girls and young women to help them thrive. 

Gifts in wills can be used to support various areas of our work including: 

  • training for volunteers 
  • activity resources and sports equipment 
  • short holidays and adventure trips 
  • development of the GFS programme  
  • starting new GFS groups

How gifts from wills are helping girls shine  

“I used to be the shy girl in the corner and my confidence has risen so much because of this amazing group. I have achieved so much and made many friends” 

“GFS is like my second family and I wouldn’t know what to do without the club being here, there is nothing else to do around here and it’s one of the best things about the area” 

“The support that has been given has helped the whole family unit. I feel the activities enhance my niece’s life giving her life skills she has never been given” 

If you decide to leave a legacy to GFS, we are grateful for your gift, whatever the size. Your generous support means that we are able to continue to provide safe spaces for girls and young women to feel positive about themselves and develop their self-esteem, confidence and resilience.
