The Story

Close your eyes and picture the best summer of your childhood. Maybe you attended basketball camp, maybe you danced your way through an intensive, maybe you went to the local YMCA, whatever program you participated in, that is the feeling Real Brown Girls (RBG) wants to replicate for our girls. RBG wants to give out 10, 2018 summer scholarships to girls throughout our network ages 11-17. You can find countless scholarships to help pay for college, but there are SO many summers to get through before graduating from high school.

Elissa Strauss of Slate.com writes about the realities parents in NYC experience trying to provide for their children during the summer, "...with day camp costing, on average, $271 a week,... In a city where 1 in 3 children live in poverty (the rate is 1 in 5 nationwide), going to camp is, for many children, just another luxury their parents can't afford." You can read more here.

The goal is 10 scholarships for 10 NYC amazing girls.

Proceeds will go to the scholarships won by our RBG Scholarship winners. With the average program costing $271 a week, at 8 weeks, the average scholarship will cost $2,168 to cover the full cost of the program per winner.

All organizational donations and proof of scholarship recipients will be sent to campaign donors after the winners have been selected by April 30th.

We appreciate you for joining us in supporting our girls! Special thanks to our fundraising and community  partners: PrettiPassionate, BK Girls Night Out, and Brooklyn Buttah, and the Beautiful Brown Girls Brunch Club.
