GirlTrek is not set up, from a reporting perspective with the IRS, to allow our members to donate to a charitable organization under our name or brand. Any giving should be done individually or personally, and not under the auspices of GirlTrek.
Members of GirlTrek are some of the most loving, thoughtful, and generous women we know. Thank you for lifting up and supporting our communities across the nation and abroad.
We want to make sure you and your hard earned money are safe, so before giving to any charity, please do your research. Here are a couple of great places to start:
There are so many great organizations around the world that would benefit from your generosity. We can not vouch for all of them, so we ask you to please do your research. We personally recommend that you support a verified female-led foundation and give to efforts that prioritizes women’s health.
Here are a couple of trusted ways to support our sisters in Africa:
Africa with Us Foundation (AWUF): AWUF is a vetted partner of GirlTrek led by a mother/daughter team Cassandra and Kukuwa Nuamah. We've seen the impact of their work firsthand. They are building a library now at Amazing Grace school near the slave castles in El Mina. The foundation has a strong reputation, clear impact reports and a focus on children and women.
GirlTrek is also supporting women’s health in Africa: Currently, we are working with a local hospital in a match campaign to pay unpaid medical bills of new mothers so they can leave the hospital with their newborn babies. This is important in the era of COVID. So members can also support this important GirlTrek initiative. We are working hard to save Black women’s lives worldwide. We are currently supporting teams in Rwanda, Malawi, South Africa and Uganda. GirlTrek members could also unofficially adopt a team and collectively, through their pooled private dollars, support women who are organizing GirlTrek teams.
