At Girls Rock Philly, we work with a small budget, a staff of two-full time folks, and hundreds of awesome volunteers. Your tax-deductible donation goes a long way at GRP; it directly supports our programs and helps ensure that no one is ever turned away for lack of funds. Your generous donations help make all this possible—we couldn’t do this without you. YOU ROCK!
