Donate a Book from Our Online Wishlist
Girls Quest has joined the Donate-A-Book Program to provide an easy way for our supporters and friends to fill our bookshelves at our SEED Program library. The Donate-A-Book programs allows you to make a difference by directly benefiting Girls Quest in a tangible and lasting way. We have created an online wishlist using the Alibris online catalog. Anyone can go to Alibris and purchase those items and have them directly shipped to us.

Sponsor a Girl in One of Our Programs
You can make a significant difference in the life of our girls by becoming a SEED Sponsor. A contribution of $2000 will cover the cost of a girl’s two weeks at Camp Oh-Neh-Tah, offering her an incredible outdoor experience. At Camp Oh-Neh-Tah, our girls have a space to be themselves, a place to explore and discover in a safe, enriching environment. Moreover, after her summer session ends, our girls will continue to be part of Girls Quest’s year-round programming.

Sponsor a Mentor Match for 1 Year - $1000
By sponsoring a Mentor Match, you can support a young girl and her one-to-one relationship with a volunteer mentor. Our Mentor Program provides our girls, ages 12-17, with year-round support networks that are often missing from their lives. These relationships with women who have achieved success in their careers and personal lives help our girls to see beyond the limited opportunities their families and communities may have led them to expect from life.

Explore Planned Giving
Seventy years ago, Ruth and Willard Kauth had the foresight to start a summer camp program to give New York City girls living in poverty the same chances that other organizations were offering to boys. Girls Quest is the proud descendant of their vision.

As a testament to the Kauths and their legacy, at this time Girls Quest is proud to announce the creation of the Ruth and Willard Kauth Society to recognize those donors making significant gifts and/or who include Girls Quest in their estate planning.

If you are considering making a similar gift or bequest—or a long-term pledge—and have questions, please contact the Girls Quest Development Department and we would be pleased to answer them and coordinate with your attorney.
