Girls on the Run

Looking Toward the Future


Girls on the Run began as a passion project with a critical mission: to empower the girls of today to become the leaders of tomorrow. At first, a volunteer Treasurer was keeping the books proficiently, but as the organization grew in size and popularity, it needed a dedicated team with professional skills to handle the volume.


Since 2015, Breakwater has handled recording of all financial transactions and bank reconciliations monthly. Every month, the firm also produces balance sheet, P&L and budgets vs. actuals reports and includes high-level commentary on variances.


The new financial system has given the organization the tools and confidence to grow revenues, program participation, grant funding and individual donor support.

“Breakwater is very professional in a personal way. They dot their i’s and cross their t’s. Everyone has a positive attitude and does whatever it takes to get the job done. Best of all, they’ve always made me feel like I’m top of their priority list.”
