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, and website.  We would also be honored for our sponsors to attend the events if they choose.

2017 Big Sister Appreciation Night – $650

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 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.

2017 Academic Event – sponsored by the Lawyers Club of San Diego Fund for Justice

One of our goals at Girls Rising is to assist the girls in exploring options for their future. We strive for an annual academic event where little sisters can explore an array of opportunities including different college campuses, academic fields, and careers. Funds are needed for food, beverages, and activities.

2017 Annual Camp-Out – sponsored by the Sundt Foundation

This is the largest event of the year for our matches.  For $3500, Outdoor Outreach ( manages the event and provides equipment, food, transportation and activities for the weekend. This year, little sisters will be able to partake in kayaking, stand up paddling, and a park cleanup. 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.

2017 Back to School Picnic - sponsored by Soroptimist International of San Diego

Keeping a focus on education is an important mission for Girls Rising.
