Girls Build inspires curiosity and confidence in girls through the world of building. This is accomplished through summer camps and after-school programming. Girls Build is proud to give scholarships to half of our participants, including free programming for foster kids.
Bottom Line for Portland
Over the course of the year, we increased confidence through building education with nearly 500 girls, teaching the basics of carpentry, electrical, plumbing, sheet metal and more to girls 8 to 14 years old.
Fortis Construction will match every $250 donation up to $8,000. Andersen Construction Foundation will match each donation dollar for dollar up to $8,000. Parr Lumber will give one tape measure to each Girls Build donor.
“Thank you so much. This has been the best camp experience my daughter has ever had. All of the teachers were excellent, engaged, caring and competent. My daughter came home each day brimming over with excitement about all of the tools she learned how to use, the new skills, and the projects.One very special element I noticed was the encouragement for collaboration, cooperation and helping each other.” —Parent of an 8-year-old camper
