About your donation
Our program is tuition-free. We try hard to make this program available to any girl who is chosen for the team, regardless of her family’s economic situation. We provide all equipment and loan specialized clothing; we provide all transportation and lodging to and from Seattle or Fairbanks during the program. Although the girls are asked to pay for their transportation to Seattle or Fairbanks (sometimes a girl’s school or other educational organization will cover this), we do our best to provide this support as well if needed.
Many of our girls go on to study science in college (biology, geology, engineering, environmental science, and more!), and several have completed Master’s and Ph.D’s. Those who don’t study science still leave with the confidence, critical thinking skills, and foundation in science to succeed in whatever path they choose.
Although any amount is a wonderful gift, consider sponsoring one girl: a $3500 gift will support one girl on this learning adventure.
$1000: Help with transportation! We rent vans to drive up to the mountains.
$250: Mountain support! Climbing rope, backpack, sleeping bag.
$100: Keep a girl warm! Puffy jacket, base layers, rain gear.
Our organization is growing!
We have new expeditions planned, but need the funding to make them happen!
Every year we get more applications than we have available spots. Your generous donation gives us the ability to expand and provide these programs to more girls from all around the world!
Upcoming: Girls on Rock (Utah), Girls on Rivers (Utah), Girls on Water (Alaska), and Girls on Ice - Canada
Other ways to give
In addition to monetary gifts, we also accept in-kind gifts. Read more about what we are looking for HERE.
