Girls Rock Asheville is now an official 501(c)(3) non-profit organization!

Our Mission

“Girls Rock Asheville is a nonprofit camp dedicated to empowering girls, trans* youth and ladies of all backgrounds and abilities through music education. As mentors, we provide a supportive space to encourage participants to express themselves through performance, positive identity development, musical experimentation, peer collaboration and DIY production.”

Asheville, NC. Girls Rock Asheville is proud to announce our official 501(c)(3) non-profit status.

From President Erin Kinard: “Having our 501(c)(3) status will help us pursue our mission by making us eligible for grants, saving us money, and enabling our donors to write off their contributions.”

Girls Rock Asheville has just completed our second year of camp with exciting plans in development for the coming year, including ladies rock camp, an after school program, and dynamic monthly events that encourage community engagement. Attainment of official non-profit status enables our organization to accomplish more and grow in a sustainable way, while providing a solid bedrock for girls and trans* youth to grow in confidence and leadership.

“Asheville, a city with strong progressive roots, has been overwhelmingly supportive of our mission and vision, and we look forward to thriving while filling a vital role in our community,” says Kinard. “In addition to the gratitude we have toward our Asheville supporters, we also thank Girls Rock Charleston for being our fiscal sponsors during the approval process.”

SheVille Team

We are a one-of-a-kind magazine that provides local, regional, national and international information about women’s lives and education, performing and visual arts and writing, the environment, green living and sustainability and regional Western North Carolina business, people and events. “Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers. Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. Justpeace.org explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society. Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears. Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi Our Mission SheVille.org provides readers with information important to women’s lives and well-being. We focus primarily on the areas of education & health, business & finance, the arts & the environment. We are particularly interested in local & regional resources, organizations & events.
