Global Foundation for Girls is an intermediary, advocate, resource provider, and network for community organizations that work with girls, gender-diverse youth, birthing persons of color and children in crisis worldwide.
Global Foundation for Girls (GFG), founded in 2020, is a Black Female Youth led intermediary purposed to redirect wealth distribution to BIPOC-led community organizations which serve girls, gender-fluid youth, and birthing persons of color. We hold a dual responsibility: to amplify the work of grassroot organizations, and to respond as an advocate, news distributor, resource provider, capacity builder, and network convenor around the core topics of Racial Injustice, Gender Injustice, Birth Injustice & Reproductive Violence, Gender Based Violence and Crisis. Authentically representative of the organizations we serve, and cognizant of the challenges faced, we are ideally situated to provide tangible support that makes for real change in funding, policy, and visibility. GFG hopes to be a thought leader, catalyst, innovator, and partner that fortifies community organizations, and acts to disrupt, reduce, and eliminate the harms experienced in communities of color. We focus specifically on girls, gender-diverse youth, and birthing persons; and define youth as prenatal to 27 years of age.
Our volunteer, consultant, and leadership teams are composed almost entirely of young adult girls 18-27 years old, gender-fluid persons, & birthing people of color. We represent the demographic we serve, and are therefore best-positioned to understand the needs of our constituents. As an organization, we are led entirely by young activists, Black women/girls, non-binary, gender-fluid and birthing persons fighting for change in their own communities. We were founded because we acknowledged the present day and historical gaps in the philanthropic system to fund spaces led by BIPOC leaders positioned to respond to grassroot community groups on the ground who are supporting sustainable efforts for girls, gender-fluid youth and birthing persons.
