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 about 300,000 young people each month – well over 3 million girls each year. This makes StandUpGirl.com one of the most visited pregnancy related sites on the internet. Most guests remain on the site an average of 15 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 15 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 25 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!

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.

Standup Girl is a great resource for abortion-minded women not knowing what to do or where to turn when they think they are pregnant and need more information . As director of a pregnancy resource center I frequently share information about Standup Girl at presentations and resource fairs.

StandUpGirl is a one-of-a-kind non-profit. As a long-time donor, I have seen its reach grow over the years in helping girls in need where they are--on the internet. They fill a very big need--no other website that I know of does what they do. They use their funds wisely, and I will continue to support StandUpGirl.

I have been super impressed with the leadership who have a genuine heart for young women. As young women themselves, they are in-step with the thinking of their generation and are presenting truths in a compassionate way that is seeing awesome results in the way of changed lives. So proud of these girls who are infusing life and hope with every step they take.

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!

I have been very impressed with the dedicated people in this nonprofit in the way they help young women and use all funds donated most effectively. Over the past many years, every one of the people we've introduced to StandUp Girl have found the same level of care that we have and have invested in these women's future. You cannot put your money in any better nonprofit! Connie Kempf

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'm glad that today's girls have that. When I share pregnancy help resources I often refer to http://www.standupgirl.com. I have often visited the website. I have been interested in volunteering for this nonprofit online.

I wish I had available to me a website resource like this during my unexpected pregnancy years ago. They provide positive encouragement, advice and resources that aren't available in very many places. They are a HELPS resource that everyone should know about.

Amazing website for women to find pregnancy information, resources and a connection to women around the world. The stories are real and emotional, letting the reader make a connection with someone else that was in the same situation they may be in. The website reaches across the world to women in crisis in every nation, providing hope and courage when they need it most. Ever state and country is positively affected by the work of the awesome team at StandUpGirl.com! Every dollar donated helps save a mother and child, and provides them with resources in their own neighborhood!

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.
