Help Tomorrow’s Girls Today.
Florida Girls Giving Back is a group of Broward County girls 8th to 12th grade who joined together to make a difference, and we give “girl power” a whole new meaning. Since 2016, Florida Girls Giving Back has funded over $100,000 to Arc Broward, Bougainvilla House, Covenant House, Habitat for Humanity Broward, and Marjory Stoneman Douglas support.
Our vision includes more than creating our own futures – it involves creating a future for girls who need our help. We take a girl-centric approach to positively impact underprivileged families and youth in Broward County.
We know that we are fortunate to have the opportunities we have in our lives. We also know that it’s our responsibility to give back to our community. That’s why we’re here. We believe that everyone should have the resources and necessities needed for a prosperous life. We are Florida Girls Giving Back and we invite you to join us and be apart of our journey of giving back!
Our Founding Story
Florida Girls Giving Back Founding Members
Several years ago, our parents created a nonprofit focusing on alcohol and drug abuse for local adolescents. When this organization ended, the excess funds were used to create Florida Girls Giving Back, Inc., a 501(c)(3) organization. We originally met thanks to a father-daughter outing, and it opened our eyes to a whole new vision of what the future holds. Eleven girls ranging from 13-18 years of age said YES and got involved with the goal to make Broward County a better place!

“FGGB been an amazing learning experience for me but it has completely changed my view on volunteering in the community along with learning the steps needed to make a non-profit run effectively. Yes, joining FGGB will look extremely good for college however, I guarantee you will get more out of FGGB than a simple resume builder. Joining FGGB allows you an opportunity to get out of your comfort zone, collaborate with other like-minded ladies, plan & attend fundraisers, potentially hold a leadership position, and most importantly change the lives of others.”
