Nonprofit joins forces with the Coalition of Adolescent Girls

CAMBRIDGE, MASSACHUSETTS (Oct 27, 2015) Girls Thinking Global (GTG), dedicated to connecting nonprofits that serve adolescent girls and young women around the world, announced today that it has been approved by the Internal Revenue Service as a tax-exempt, charitable organization and earned its 501(c)(3) status. GTG is now eligible to receive tax-deductible charitable contributions that will support its goal of creating powerful connections to change the trajectory of lives for girls and young women around the world.

GTG has also joined forces with the Coalition for Adolescent Girls (CAG), an organization dedicated to supporting, investing in, and improving the lives of adolescent girls. GTG will be a contributing member to the many initiatives and projects coordinated by CAG, which brings together more than 40 international organizations that design, implement, and evaluate programs that benefit girls throughout the developing world who are trapped in cycles of poverty. 

“We are so pleased to work with the Coalition for Adolescent Girls (CAG). Their vision of a world where adolescent girls are able to fully realize their rights, navigate challenges, and access opportunities during their transition from childhood to adulthood andbeyond, fits perfectly with our mission,” said GTG’s Executive Director, Ginny Kirkland. “Girls Thinking Global is excited about our work with CAG and the many organizations that we encountered at the U.N. General Assembly meeting in New York this past September. Together, we are embarking on a visionary journey to create a global network serving women and girls, to leverage resources—monetary, in-kind, and communicative—to ensure that every possible dollar and resource is used to improve the quality of life for adolescent girls worldwide.”

Membership in CAG complements the efforts of Girls Thinking Global in connecting organizations that help girls and young women to collaborate, share, and support each other.
