How may a student participate in receiving a dress from Project G.L.A.M.?
Individual students are NOT able to register for G.L.A.M. They must be registered through a teacher, guidance counselor, social worker or parent coordinator from their school. Students eligible to participate in Project G.L.A.M. are young women in the 5 boroughs of NYC who meet the following criteria:
- They are economically disadvantaged
- They have strong school attendance records
- They are passing all of their classes
- They are on track to graduate in this school year
I would like to (or my group would like to) volunteer to help at Project G.L.A.M.
Thank you for offering to volunteer at the event! Volunteer opportunities will be posted in early 2021.
My company would like to donate product (dresses, accessories, new make-up) to Project G.L.A.M., what are our next steps?
We accept donations throughout the year at the address below. If you have a large donation (more than 20 gowns) please contact email@example.com to coordinate the logistics.
We are a company that would like to support Project G.L.A.M., what are the next steps?
Project G.L.A.M. dresses thousands of young women in need annually for their prom. To meet the demand, WGIRLS relies heavily on the generosity and support of corporate donors. We are so grateful for the support we receive from sponsors, partners, and corporate donors throughout the year! If you would like more information on how your company can get involved with Project G.L.A.M. please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please provide a brief description of how you would like to be involved and we will get back to you as soon as possible. Thank you!
Do you provide a tax receipt for dress donations?
WGIRLS does provide a tax receipt for dress donations, however the receipts are not itemized or place a value on your donation. The tax receipt simply acknowledges your donation and leaves it up to you and your tax adviser to determine its value. If you would like a tax receipt, please include a note with your email address in the package. Receipts are ONLY provided via email.
