Day of Giving - March 12, 2020


Thank you!!

We know that it is difficult to think about things beyond staying healthy and what current precautionary measures we should be following during times that change our normal routines. That’s why we are especially thankful to the 45 donors who took the time to support our Day of Giving on March 12. Thanks to you, $10,303.50 was raised for the Girl Grant Fund to support Girls in need. Once it is safe for “normal” routines to resume, these funds will support new program activities for Afterschool Troops and summer opportunities for Girls in need.

Why are you holding this event? 
To help Girls in financial need through Girl Grants and sponsored programs. Did you know that almost half of local households struggle financially? Last year, financial support from our alumni, member parents, volunteers and donors enabled us to reach 1,211 Girls in financial need, but we know there are hundreds more Girls who can benefit from a Girl Scout experience. All proceeds from Girl Scouts’ Day of Giving and Birthday Celebration will be used to build the Girl Grant Fund.  Grants are provided to Girls so they can join Girl Scouts, have their own uniforms, and attend programs  - like our summer camps!  Funds are also used to support Girls from low income communities through Afterschool Troops.
