Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Human Services

Mission: The StandUpGirl Foundation as a 501(c)3 charitable organization dedicated to providing pregnant adolescent and young adult women with resources and support. The mission is to change hearts and save lives by educating young women on the development of the unborn child and alternatives to abortion. Our unique approach allows us to “reach across the aisle” to young men and women who would not think about going, or want to go, to a pro-life website. We cross the great divide of the issues related to abortion and provide resources, guidance and connections to life-affirming centers in the girl’s immediate local area. Perhaps the most important component of the website is the real-life stories of girls facing their own crisis pregnancies and how our StandUpGirl.com team provides personal and individual guidance and support to help young women in crisis to make a choice that both they and their baby can live with.

Results: The StandUpGirl.com Foundation is nothing short of a miracle. Founded in 2001, this amazing website now reaches over 400,000 young people each month through the website– well over 7 million girls each year with our Social Media pages. This makes StandUpGirl.com one of the most visited pregnancy related sites on the internet. Most guests remain on the site an average of 22 minutes, taking in phenomenal fetal development photography, life-like illustrations, remarkable videos and a music room. In addition, the popular Forum, Blog and Chat Room features connect young women from all over the world who share their stories of hope and courage. In order for us to change hearts and save lives, we must first bring young people to the site. We know from our 17 years in the ministry of saving lives, that the amount of money spent on our outreach advertising, directly affects the number of young women and youth who find our site. There is an enormous amount of information available on the internet. With over 81 million search results for the word abortion alone, finding StandUpGirl.com would be next to impossible. That is why we advertise on the Google and Bing networks through key search words. As the number of visitors to the site increases, the number of emails we receive from girls telling us they have chosen life for their baby also increases. Based on the relationship between monthly advertising spending, visits to the site, and emails from young women who choose life for their baby, the life-saving potential of this website is only limited by the funds available!

Target demographics: Young women facing unplanned pregnancies

Direct beneficiaries per year: Over 4 million women in crisis or seeking pregnancy information

Geographic areas served: Worldwide!

Programs: Text Counseling, Online Counseling and Resource Referrals. 24x7 Hotline, Crisis Pregnancy Support, Abortion Recovery Support.

Very noble pro-life cause. Helping the unborn babies by helping the moms. They even help the dads to help the moms to help the babies. Great support system.

As a pro-life member of the community, I attempt to reach out to women and girls in my neighborhood and at our local abortion facility, who may be in crisis pregnancy but do not want abortion. I spread the word about Standup Girl with total confidence that it will truly be a support and resource to women in crisis pregnancy. Your signs are in the windows of my house and your business cards are always in my purse! Thank you so much for being there!

I’ve been a supporter of Stand Up Girl.com for more than 20 years. I first learned of it, because of friends of mine who are scientists and on the board as volunteers. Since then, I’ve attended events and learned more from the organizers and the women who are helped. StandUpGirl does what it says- it helps women by providing lots of useful information online and personal guidance and comfort and compassion. I highly recommend it.

Stand up Girl is a nonprofit that has helped many young women, using peer-to-peer counseling over social media to listen to and advise about sexual and reproductive issues. I’ve heard the counselors and a few young women they have helped speak, and know this is highly effective. The website has lots of factual information, which make it a viable research source for students. Everything is founded in a Christian perspective that respects life as well as recognizing that the women they counsel may have various perspectives and difficult circumstances. I highly recommend everyone check out the website.

My husband and I were introduced to StandUpGirl in the 1990s, and have been monthly supporters for a long time.

The directors and staff are selfless, passionate servants who put their entire being into making this nonprofit a success. The success stories of gals who have found SUG by accident when browsing "abortion" are heartwarming and REAL LIVES ARE SAVED! I am always impressed by the number of visitors to the site that are just plain afraid to tell their parents that they are pregnant. Once they connect with one of the Stand Up Girls, their fears become manageable and many moms have found that their parents and even the father's parents are supportive of giving life to these children.

I think that SUG is the best aspect of Oregon Right to Life, and plan to continue to support this nonprofit as long as I am breathing. Excellent work--and SO necessary.

Have been to StandUpGirl events and have gave money to the organization and have always felt the monies given were used well and used most effectively to help young girls needing help at critical times in their lives. The staff has always been helpful and communication very effective and timely. This is one non-profit I do not hesitate to help financially or in getting the word out about.

I had an abortion which would’ve been my fourth child. I didn’t know at that time that I was killing my baby. Had I known, I would’ve trusted God so that He would’ve worked things out that I could’ve given birth and raised my child. I’m thankful for Standup Girl, that they are targeting young people, so that they don’t have to go through the pain and regrets that I have endured.

There are SO MANY charities! StandUpGirl Foundation is doing a wonderful job using ingenuity and technology to speak to the younger crowd - so necessary. Many young women have never seen what actually happens to the baby during an abortion. There is evidence that if we can show these ladies actual stories and pictures of what these little children are worth and bring them face to face with alternatives that embrace life, many hearts can be changed. In a crisis pregnancy, emotions of fear, desperation and alone-ness can overwhelm these young moms. StandUpGirl Foundation is doing a good work, saving lives, giving hope and practical love. I'm happy to give to them and am glad I found out about this group.

Stand Up Girl is so accessible and relevant with their great work at having a presence on the internet. Girls and women in a tough spot can finally get a full range of information and resources as well as caring, supportive interaction with real people. I support many charities, but this one makes the list year after year because they keep their operation lean and focused, to reach out in the most effective way to people who need love and complete information, not judgment or pressure.

When I worked at a Pregnancy Care Center we used them as a referral for our clients. I had one girl tell me she started chatting with another girl (on this or a similar website) and they were able to eventually meet and have a playdate with their children. It brings pregnant girls hope, encouragement and much needed support through relationships and referrals.

I've been supporting this ministry for more than a decade. The staff and outstanding team of volunteers really care about young women and work tirelessly to provide support and encouragement.

My experience has been only positive. I see every life as precious from the moment a connection is made in the womb. Stand Up Girl goes to great lengths to support young women through the process of pregnancy to meet the needs of each woman and celebrate her triumph of choosing life. In the beginning, God said let there be light; the greatest light is new Life formed and created by the Master Designer. We are all made in His image and for relationship with each other; relationship begins with conception. StandUpGirl shows forth these truths beautifully.

Stand Up Girl is an amazing organization. We have supported them for many years and look forward to their yearly Fund Raising Gala. We have sponsored tables and also invited many people to attend. Our favorite part of the evening is to hear young women tell their stories about how Stand Up Girl helped them make the decision to save their baby and how their lives have improved through Stand Up Girl's support.
Our church is a big supporter of Stand Up Girl and sponsors a table at that Gala. We put signs up on our church campus where high school students pass daily. Young people facing an unplanned pregnancy can go to the website for information and ways to confidentially communicate with a support person. I highly recommend supporting Stand Up Girl. Sincerely, Anna

At our pro-life group at St. Cecilia church, we witness at Planned Parenthood in Beaverton.
We share the 'Stand-Up' Girl cards. The cute picture and the affirmative little saying invites the young women (and men) to 'have a look'. We share that there is information about our bodies, our sexuality, our chemistry and all sorts of testimonials of young people and how they work through their 'stuff'. This is a wonderful, helpful resource. Thank you, Stand-Up Girl! Please continue this support for our young people!

Became aware of StandUpGirl a number of years ago at a fundraising banquet, and have donated through the years. A unique non-profit that provides education, first-person accounts, and ongoing support to young women who often find themselves in a lonely position facing a difficult situation and attendant choices.

The stories of the women and children whose lives have been affected by StandUpGirl are inspiring!

This is a great organization with caring, committed staff, making an important difference in an efficient way. Highly recommend.

Back in 1959, I wish my 16-year-old mom had something like this around when she was carrying me! Her pregnancy was awful; our lives would have been better for it. But we made it.

I find this website to be a positive, informative site for women and girls. It gives girls who have faced an unplanned pregnancy a forum on which to tell their stories. These stories in turn help other girls who are struggling with an unplanned pregnancy decision. It is a non-threatening place for girls to go who need to talk about a critical issue in their lives.

Then they are directed to local resources where they can get the practical help they need. I fully support this very important charity.

I got pregnant when I was 17 and a senior in high school. Obviously I was very scared. I didn't know anyone who had a baby at my age. I found standup girl and was greeted with encouragement and hope. There are so many encouraging stories, and always someone to answer questions. I love them and they work they are doing.
