A portion of the proceeds from productions of Women Rock will be donated to the Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls (WMRC), a non-profit music and mentoring organization that empowers girls and women through music education, volunteerism, and activities that foster safer spaces, self-respect, leadership skills, creativity and collaboration.

WMRC offers year-round and summer programs serving girls and gender non-binary youth ages 5–18. The Girls Rock! camp summer sessions (for ages 8–18), and Jumpstart summer rock camp (for ages 5-7), bring together intentionally diverse groups to explore identity and self-expression, ask questions of the world, build community, and act as leaders in their own process of musical creation. The non-profit also offers a three-day Ladies Rock Camp intensive (for adults ages 19 and up), based upon their youth model. Year-round programming includes after-school Rhythm & Voice workshops and Rock Out Today mini-camps in NYC public schools, as well as an Arts & Activism Fellowship which provides opportunities for teen women from low- and moderate-income households to create their own podcasts, and explore the powerful combination of art and social justice.
