Shes The First
She's the First fights for a world where every girl chooses her own future. We team up with local organizations across 11 countries to ensure girls are educated, respected, and heard.
The challenges holding girls back are complex, so we don’t pretend to have easy answers or magic wands. It’s not enough to get a girl into school if later she is pulled out for reasons beyond her control. We can teach girls to speak up, but we can’t forget to make sure that the world listens. This is why She’s the First takes a holistic approach to our work. We find, fund, and support solutions that not only educate and empower girls but also build up the communities where they are able to flourish.

Why Donate Crypto Directly? Taxes!
There’s a reason high net worth individuals tend to donate property instead of cash. Donating cryptocurrency directly to a 501c3 nonprofit is more tax efficient and can save you money.
The IRS classifies cryptocurrency as property for tax purposes which means it is typically the most tax efficient way to support your favorite cause. When donating crypto, You receive a tax deduction for the fair market value of the crypto, and you avoid the capital gains tax you would have incurred if you had sold the crypto and then made a donation. That means you’re able to donate more, as well as deduct more on your tax return. The difference? Sometimes more than 30%.
If you provide an email, you will automatically receive a tax receipt after donating.

Girls can’t wait any longer—the clock is ticking and their futures are at stake. Join us to learn more about the issue and take action through our She’s the First COVID-19 Response Fund.
