Many businesses are realising the importance that their customers see in have a positive social impact. If you’re looking to create a corporate charity partnership with a focus on gender equality, GFS could be a great fit.

There are many benefits of charity partnerships in being seen as an employer with a commitment to gender equality. Businesses that can demonstrate this are among the first choices for the best women candidates in the workforce, resulting in a stronger, more progressive organisation.

Furthermore, Harvard Business Review that found 64% of consumers say that sharing the same values with a brand is the primary reason they have a relationship in the first place. Charity partnerships are a great way to show that you are making a material commitment to gender equality.

If your organisation is interested in supporting GFS as a part of your corporate fundraising or equality and diversity outreach, please contact us on fundraising@girlsfriendlysociety.org.uk

Celebrate International Day of the Girl with us

Over the last few years, International Women’s Day has taken the world by storm. However, many of the issues women face begin in girlhood. If effectively supported during their formative years, girls have the potential to change the world.

The UN’s International Day of the Girl Child focuses attention on the need to address the challenges girls face and promotes girls’ empowerment. For International Day of the Girl 2021 we’re putting together a book by girls for girls. We invite all girls and young women in England and Wales, to speak out and express themselves with us in our upcoming creative anthology book.

We’re looking for partners to sponsor, support and promote this initiative between now and October 2021. If you’re interested in working with GFS for IDG, please email imogeng@girlsfriendlysociety.org.uk

Sponsor an intake of The GFS Big Dreamers’ Club

The GFS Big Dreamers’ Club was born out of COVID and has proved incredibly popular. It’s a six week online programme for girl age 8-13 to explore unstoppable futures and raise their aspirations. We are currently running with our second group of girls and have a third group on the waiting list for the next intake.

Our next steps will be to increase capacity for this course by recruiting and training volunteers to deliver it, to continue to refine the content and put procedures in place to measure its impact. We also hope to develop more themed streams that will allow girls to develop in all areas of need.

Help us develop our infrastructure

As we grow as an organisation, there are key infrastructure developments that are vital for us to continue to deliver our services. If you specialise in specific areas of development and can offer pro bono services or project funding, your support would be invaluable for our growth.
