GFS is looking for 40 fabulous companies to help us raise the £40k we need to launch six new GFS groups in the coming school year.

We are recruiting 40 partners to raise or donate £1,000 to help us reach our target by September 2022. In return, our Fab 40 companies will get:

  • Exclusive networking and training opportunities
    • One hour GFS challenging gender stereotypes workshop for staff with take home resources
    • Invitation to Fab 40 online networking event to meet like-minded businesses
    • Invitation to drinks reception to celebrate at the end of the campaign
  • Increased brand awareness and association with supporting gender equality
    • Feature on our Fab 40 webpage and in our 21/22 annual report
    • Be included in social media coverage of the campaign
    • Receive digital materials to help you promote your contribution among your networks
    • Appear in an SEO optimised article celebrating Fab 40 donations

What difference does £1,000 make?

GFS groups are already making a huge difference to girls in the communities they support.

Our ambition is to open six new groups in the academic year 22/23.

We open groups in areas where girls need us most and are most impacted by a safe, stable, supportive community outside of school and family.

Each group we launch costs £6,000 to run for the first year.

This includes the cost of a dedicated local youth worker to run the group, start up equipment, fee waivers for girls who need them, training volunteers, promotion, venue hire and more.

By joining this campaign, you can be part of the reason we are able to build the wellbeing and self-esteem of an additional 96 girls like Olivia every single week.
