The Centennial Bench Project:
To celebrate Girls Inc.’s 100 years of programs, services and mentorship to Greater Lowell girls and young women, a permanent bench will be placed in our front garden honoring STRONG, SMART, BOLD women. Recognize yourself and/or another woman with these qualities.
To help further our impact in our community and look ahead to the next 100 years, the funds collected will be invested in the Girls Inc. of Greater Lowell endowment fund. A dedication ceremony will be held this fall to unveil the bench and celebrate all the women that are honored.
If paying by check, please send payment with the Centennial Bench Project form. If paying online, please use the drop-down option below. Following your online payment, please fill-out and return the Centennial Bench Form.
