As a company founded on the values of wellness and mental health, Girls’ Night In recognizes the economic barriers Black women and girls face in accessing therapy and we seek to help to lower these barriers. The Loveland Foundation Therapy Fund provides access to high quality, culturally competent mental health services for Black women and girls. In addition to the 5% of sponsorship revenue GNI has already donated to The Loveland Foundation Therapy Fund, we are kicking off a $10,000 fundraiser for the fund with the help of our community. We hope you'll join us in donating to this worthy cause. For the month of June, GNI will continue to donate a portion of sponsorship revenue to the Foundation.

The Loveland Foundation works with partners such as Therapy for Black Girls, National Queer & Trans Therapists of Color Network, Talkspace and Open Path Collective to provide recipients with a comprehensive list of mental health professionals across the country providing high quality, culturally competent services to Black women and girls. The foundation is founded by Rachel Cargle, an educator, speaker, and activist who has created many educational anti-racism resources.

The work doesn’t end here or today, and we are looking forward to continuing our own internal education and commitments, amplification, and support of the Black and BIPOC communities.

Thank you so much for your interest in supporting the Loveland Foundation Therapy Fund. Whether you have already donated or you are just learning about the project, we are grateful to have you on board.


 With therapy sessions in the U.S. typically costing anywhere from $60 - $250-- even with insurance, the prevalent and ingrained stigma surrounding mental health in many communities, and the fact that the vast majority of therapists in this country are white, it is often difficult for Black women and girls to access therapy when they need it. We wanted to change that. 


In our pilot program, we raised over $250,000 with the support of our generous community and provided financial assistance to hundreds of Black women and girls to go to therapy. We did this through collaborative partnerships with  Therapy for Black Girls, Open Path Collective, National Queer and Trans Therapists of Color Network, and Talkspace, networks and service providers that are all committed to making therapy more affordable and accessible. 


No matter how much you are able to give, we are excited to work together with our community again to bring therapy support directly to Black women and girls who need it. Please donate now to tangibly tell these women and girls, “We see you, we hear you, and we are invested in your healing.”Generations will benefit from their healing.
