GSNENY is excited to announce our second annual virtual fundraising event on Wednesday, March 9th. The first Ignite Her Flame was on March 9, 2021.

Ignite Her Flame Makes Camp and Outdoor Programs Possible for our Girls! Last year, sponsors and supporters contributed $19,367.50 to support outdoor programs.

This year, we hope to raise $25,000, ensuring that Outdoor Programs and Camps are available to Girl Scouts across our Council. To help us meet the moment, a board member has issued a challenge grant for donations to Ignite Her Flame 2022 and will make a gift of $2,000 once that level is met.

Your gifts to Ignite Her Flame will build Girls' outdoor skills, engage Girls in space exploration, help Girls explore ecology and human's environmental impact, and support year-round outdoor adventures for Girls. Your generous support will make it possible for Girls to learn skills in boating, fire-building, outdoor cooking, astronomy, animal tracking, environmental research, ice-fishing, and so much more!

Ignite Her Flame is part of our Girl Scout Week celebrations and marks our 110 year anniversary and our Girl Scout Birthday on March 12. Girls, volunteers, and camp staff will share their Girl Scout stories throughout the event.

The virtual event is free to attend! Register for the Zoom link to join us on March 9 at 7 p.m.
