Girls Inc. to be the Beneficiary of Macquarie Investment Management's
Charity Classic
We are thrilled to be the beneficiary of Macquarie Investment Management’s 14th annual Charity Classic for the second year in a row!

With the help of the Macquarie Group Foundation, this event has raised more than $2 million for nonprofit organizations across the Philadelphia region over the past 14 years.

Q+A with Safiyyah: Girls Inc. Girls Action Network
We're so proud of Safiyyah, who has been involved with Girls Inc. of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey for the past 5 years and is now a part of the Girls Inc. Girls Action Network. Last month, the Action Network met for the first time in Washington D.C., where they were trained on how to meet with elected officials to advocate for issues that matter to them. We sat down with Safiyyah to talk about her experience at Girls Inc., her trip to D.C., and more.

Tell me a little bit about yourself.
My name is Safiyyah and I am an incoming junior at George Washington Carver High School of Engineering and Science. In my free time, I like to read, draw cartoons, play with Rubik's cubes, and watch shows on Netflix (I’m watching The Crown right now!).

How long with been involved with Girls Inc.? What is your favorite thing about Girls Inc.?
I’ve been involved with Girls Inc. for 5 years and I will soon be President of the Ambassador Club ( a leadership program designed to prepare the next generation of future leaders with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to succeed). I love the sisterhood that comes with being a part of the Girls Inc. network. I get the chance to mentor some of the younger girls and I get to be mentored by the older girls -- we’re all basically a family.
