International Day of the Girl

Every October, Girls Inc. of Jacksonville acknowledges and celebrates the United Nation’s International Day of the Girl with activities, guest speakers and programming that allows our girls to learn about what life is like as a girl around the world! Too often are girls globally not offered the same opportunities and support as their boy counterparts. Girls Inc. is working to change that dynamic every day, not just on International Day of the Girl. Click Here to make a tax-deductible donation to support the work we do every day!

Winter candyland & silent auction

Girls Inc. girls are strong, smart, bold… and too sweet! Thank you to all who attended and participated in our first ever Winter Candyland & Silent auction! Because of your support, this even was a huge success. Not only were we able to raise funds to continue serving Girls Inc. Programming in Jacksonville, we also inspired a room full of people to invest in girls and help them break generational cycles and grow up strong smart & bold!

Spring Events

Every spring, we host a Women of Vision Celebration Luncheon to celebrate our girls and our distinguished honorees for the Women of Vision and the Champion for Girls awards. Beginning in 2022, our annual Women of Vision Celebration Luncheon now also features an Organizational Champion for Girls Award, highlighting an organization making changes for women and girls both locally and globally.
