Expanding What Is Possible with our Virtual Fundraiser

These are extraordinary times and we need to do what is right for our girls, staff, investors, families, and community.

We will no longer be holding our Strong, Smart & Bold Luncheon and will be rolling out an exciting virtual fundraiser featuring our three Strong, Smart & Bold Teen Scholars!


We will celebrate the transformative power of Girls Inc. programs, and how we – as a community – are creating positive changes for our collective future. As we are expanding what is possible for our girls, we are expanding what is possible for all of us.

Girls Inc. scholars Jacqueline, Kayla, and Yonglin will share their stories via video and how they have redefined their futures because of Girls Inc.

Thank you to our sponsors and supporters!

For those of you who have sponsored or purchased tickets for the event, we will reach out to you directly. If you have questions, please contact Kathy Brown, Chief Development Officer at or (510) 357-5515 ext. 213.
