Family Giving Campaign
The Family Giving campaign is specifically designed for families to have the opportunity to contribute financially to their daughter's Girl Scout leadership experience by making a personal, tax-deductible contribution to support the Girl Scout program. Family support for Girl Scouting is very important. We offer a wide range of opportunities to our Girl Scouts, and family contributions provide programs and funding for our camps, as well as resources and training materials for troop leaders. The cost of providing the programs, leadership, and materials that are required to support one girl for a year is $275. When you make a donation to the Family Giving campaign, 100 percent of your contribution stays in our council to support girls in the 21-county council area. Support from our families shows potential corporate donors that our members believe in the value of our organization.
The Girl Scout program has a significant impact on young girls' lives. It helps them to:
- Develop a strong sense of self
- Feel connected to their community
- Gain practical life skills
- Develop critical thinking
- Become resourceful problem solvers
- Feel empowered to make a difference in the world
And, they have a great adventure in the process!
Each family that contributes $20 or more will receive one Family Giving campaign patch.
Troops that have 100 percent participation in the campaign will be entered in a drawing to receive either a weekend at camp or a program scholarship. Additionally, each girl in the troop will receive a special patch recognizing the troop's 100 percent participation.
Girl Scouts gives girls an opportunity to grow and learn through a wide variety of experiences. Make an investment in your daughter's future. Join the other families who contribute to the Family Giving campaign and help us fulfill our mission. Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.
