From the beginning, we knew that raising awareness with the Girl Rising film wasn’t enough. We also wanted to drive resources to girls’ education programs on the ground. To do this, we created the Girl Rising Fund, operated by the Tides Foundation, a 501©(3) donor-advised fund manager. Between 2013 and December 2015, generous donations from inspired viewers totaled $2 million for the Girl Rising Fund.

These donations were distributed to our seven NGO partners – A New Day Cambodia, CARE, Partners in Health, Plan International USA, Room to Read, United Nations Foundation/Girl Up, and World Vision for their girls’ education and related programs around the world. A small portion of these donations were set aside for distribution to smaller non-profits and organizations helping further the GR mission around the world.

We do not accept unsolicited grant requests.
