Double the Impact with a YOP Gift before year end!

Did you know that Girls on the Run St. Louis is part of the Youth Opportunities Program (YOP), administered by the Missouri Department of Economic Development? The program provides tax credits to individuals or organizations administering positive youth development projects, like Girls on the Run.

Individuals and businesses with Missouri tax liability who make a donation over $1,000 are eligible for a 50% state tax credit (beyond your regular deduction!). Our YOP donations support our Adopt-a-School Program, enabling GOTR-STL to ensure access to our life-changing program for Missouri girls in identified, lower socioeconomic communities. More than 70% of our Girls on the Run received some form of scholarship support this year and our philosophy to never turn a girl away due to financial need is made possible through generous YOP donations!
