Girls Invested in Volunteer Efforts

What is G.I.V.E.?

G.I.V.E. (Girls Invested in Volunteer Efforts), an initiative of The Women's Fund of Smith County, teaches area high school sophomore, junior and senior girls abut leadership and philanthropy. Meeting monthly throughout the school year, girls will:

  • Learn more about the joy of philanthropy
  • Research local nonprofit needs
  • Work together to impact our community


Our goal is to have a diverse group of high school girls, representing all schools in Smith County. Everyone has something unique to contribute. Each girl brings different talents and perspectives. By uniting girls from all backgrounds, the focus becomes a shared vision and a shared hope for a better community. Serving, learning and giving together can bring about positive change.

YES! I am interested in becoming a part of G.I.V.E.
