Get Involved

We’re always looking for new girlfriends, and there are a number of ways you can get involved!

Attend an Event

When you attend a Girlfriend Factor event, it all comes full circle – you’ll have a great time for a great cause! And events are the perfect place to meet other women involved in GFF. So grab your girlfriends or simply come alone and join us! Click here to be directed to our Events page and see a full calendar.

Join a Committee

Participating in a committee is a great next-step to get more connected with Girlfriend Factor, and can lead to additional leadership opportunities within the organization. Whether you’d be interested in volunteering to help make one of our fundraising or social events a success, or would like to discuss other opportunities such as assisting with our GoGirl! Grant Recipient relations, contact Calista Vassios at to start the discussion.
