Why Give?

Girls For Technology is a part of the solution. We know you have many places where you could be giving, and we’re thankful you’re considering us.

Girls For Technology provides hands-on solutions that make our community of Hartford, CT, a better, more equitable place. We bring STEM education and opportunities to girls who might not otherwise have these educational experiences. And we are committed to using every dollar you give wisely, practicing transparent stewardship of all of our financial resources.
