In order to provide new and exciting experiences for our Little Sisters, we require additional funding for specific activities and events. Please consider sponsoring an upcoming event. Our sponsorships include recognition in our newsletter, Facebook page, Instagram, and website. We would also be honored for our sponsors to attend the events if they choose.
Please note that events in 2021 will remain virtual until we can safely gather in person.
Virtual Big Sister Appreciation Night - sponsored by Shop Good and Nicole Celeste Marquel
Being a Big Sister is not easy. The success of our matches is a team effort but relies heavily on the commitment Big Sisters make to their Little Sisters and the program. Every year we dedicate at least one evening to Big Sisters to show our appreciation for what they do. Funds are needed for food, beverages, activities, and door prizes. There is also an option for door prize donations. Contact us for details.
Virtual Game Nights and Community Building
It is so important to stay connected and share some laughter with our community! Our Big and Little Sisters love gathering for games, trivia, and fun on Zoom. Sponsorship is needed for prizes!
Virtual Graduation Celebration
Girls Rising Little Sisters have a 100% graduation rate! And we want to celebrate our grads as they take the next step into their future. Funding is needed for graduation gifts and prizes.
Annual Camp-Out – pending the ability to gather outdoors
This is the largest event of the year for our matches. For $4000, Outdoor Outreach manages the event and provides equipment, food, transportation and activities for the weekend. Utilizing Outdoor Outreach’s program takes the camp-out beyond a simple overnight in the woods and transforms it into a unique and fun learning experience for the Little and Big Sisters.
Virtual Ongoing Big Sister Trainings
Ongoing mentor training contributes to more effective, long lasting, high quality mentoring relationships. Girls Rising Big Sisters will be offered three ongoing training workshops each year. Current and past topics include: Trauma Informed Mentoring, Race: Are We So Different?, Body Positivity, De-stigmatizing Mental Health, and more. Funding goes to supporting a facilitator, venue, and snacks.

Annual Back to School Picnic
Keeping a focus on education is an important mission for Girls Rising. Our Back to School Picnic not only celebrates the upcoming school year but ensures the girls have the supplies they need to be successful. This year, matches will enjoy a day of outdoor fun at Coronado Tidelands Park complete with stand up paddle boarding and kayaking. The Sponsorship provides the activity, back-packs, and school supplies for each of the girls as well as food and drink for the picnic.

We hold workshops on resume writing, business pitch ideas, and really help our Little Sisters to feel excited and empowered on their path. Funding is needed for venue, activities, food and beverage, and career focussed gift bags.
