Help us keep giving girls* the tools and confidence to imagine, design and build fearlessly.

Our youth and community programming changes lives, and it is only possible with the support of people like you. Whether you can offer money, tools, or resources to give, your support will make a lasting impact.

“Girls” refers to gender-expansive youth (cis girls, trans girls, non-binary youth, gender non-conforming youth, gender queer youth, and any girl-identified youth).

Donate

We rely on the generosity of individual supporters to fuel our technical, creative, and service-based workshops for pre-teen and teen girls. Your one-time donation or monthly pledge signals faith in our work and supports us in inspiring girls to fear less and build more.

Our Supporters

“My commitment to supporting women in technology means ensuring that girls have access to the spaces, tools, and committed mentors they need and deserve. Girls Garage provides all of these things at no cost to girls who will be our future leaders in STEM fields. It’s so important to champion people doing real things with their hands, for their communities, and that’s why I support Girls Garage.”

— Craig Newmark, Founder of craigslist and Craig Newmark Philanthropies

“Problem-solving, working with my hands, busting gender roles, being mentored by excellent role models, serving the community, and being in a safe space with others working through the same challenges I am—I know firsthand how empowering each of these experiences is. Girls Garage offers all of them, so I’ve been a grateful supporter for many years.”

— Vita, Donor and Founder of Culture of Repair

“Free tuition at Girls Garage has eliminated any barriers that could deprive me of an experience that I believe all girls should have access to. It has allowed me to practice something I am passionate about, in a safe space, without having to worry about fees, as well as allowed some of my closest friends to attend these empowering classes with me. If I wasn’t able to be a part of Girls Garage, I would have never found my love for engineering and design, which is what I’m going to do in college and as a career in the future.”

— Erica, 17 years old

“Girls Garage has changed the way my daughter feels about herself as a learner and a creative person—and perhaps that is the greatest gift the program offers our girls. The skillset my daughter is building is clear and undeniable. I never anticipated the self-reliance she would gain, or the faith she would develop in herself as a result of her work. The experience has exploded her notion of what she believes she is capable of doing.”

— Stephanie, Parent and Board Member
