Dignity, Service, Graciousness & Conviviality – Since 1927

National Civic Projects

Although the original concept was purely social, The Girl Friends, Incorporated has expanded its purpose to include charitable and cultural activities. Nationally, approximately one quarter million in contributions have been made to major organizations such as the NAACP, the United Negro College Fund, the Children’s Defense Fund, the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture, The Flint Water Crisis and The Girl Friends Fund Scholarship Program. In 1989, the Girl Friends Fund was founded as a separate 501(c)(3) organization to provide financial assistance to students countrywide. Locally, Girl Friend chapters have supported a broad spectrum of causes from educational projects, as well as the arts, health and wellness initiatives and community assistance programs.
