One Million Reasons to Build
Join Our Legacy Wall
Our Legacy Wall is going to be a three-dimensional installation full of inspiration and encouragement - reasons why our work is important. Throughout the space of our building, these Girls For A Change branded flowers, made from engraved acrylic, will list each donor's name and a personal word of encouragement directly to Black girls.
We invite you to share your reason with us and be a part of our Legacy Wall installation. We’re working with interior designer Jen Fell, from studio505, to create a beautiful installation that flows throughout the space and incorporates the words of our supporters.
This is a great way to show your support as a Corporate or Individual Donor. See below for the room mockup showing the flowers on the wall and review Donor Options lower on the page.

What is the Legacy Wall supporting?
Restorative work to heal, build, and uplift Black girls, can only happen within sacred spaces dedicated to that work. Our Legacy Wall supports the One Million Reasons to Build Capital Campaign to create a brave and safe space for Black girls. Building a space of our own, on our own terms, shows Black girls that we can break down the historic and systemic barriers to opportunity, education, wealth-building, business ownership, nonprofit leadership and property ownership. Girls For A Change is changing the face of North Chesterfield with an Africentric design, co-created with the Black girls who will occupy the space. Our space signifies a community that welcomes, accepts, and protects Black girls. With tenacity and effort, we can build this space and show Black girls that they can live these changes into existence.
