Our work is made possible by the generosity of individuals, corporations and foundations committed to improving the lives of adolescent girls. 

Thank you to UPLIFT Desk!

This summer, the Austin GirlForward crew finally moved into a program center. We were beyond excited to finally have a space that simultaneously serves as an office for staff, and a home for GirlForward girls to make their own, to root down in, to gather in community.

Our biggest challenge ahead of moving in, however, was knowing that we didn’t have anything to fill the space with! Our tiny Austin team braced for the impending shuffle of locating needed furniture so we could do our work and create a welcoming environment for girls in our programs.

Enter UPLIFT Desk. UPLIFT Desk is a company that truly models giving back and cares about serving the needs of the local community. Through its generous nonprofit donation program, in which they donate desks to a different Austin area nonprofit each month, we received a robust fleet of sleek, height-adjustable desks that now grace our program center. We couldn’t be happier and more productive. With the addition of eight of these bad boys in our center, we are totally #gettingitdone.

And as girls, volunteers, and tutors gather to eat, study, or laugh around the long wooden desk in the kitchen (which has organically become both a dining room table and a homework table!), we feel the gratitude. Thank you, UPLIFT Desk!
