Now in its seventh year, Girl Scouts of Northern California’s first Giving Circle Chapter is a network of Girl Scout alums and friends, who share a passion in making Girl Scouts accessible to girls from low-income communities in Santa Clara County, by pooling membership donations and awarding grants to Girl Scouts of Northern California’s programs and projects that build girls of courage, confidence, and character.
In six years, Santa Clara’s Giving Circle has awarded $225,000 in grants to Girl Scout programs that enabled girls from low-income communities in Santa Clara to gain leadership, knowledge, and life skills. They have also supported the upgrade of the camp infrastructure at Hidden Falls, so more girls can experience outdoor adventure.
Meeting four times a year, Giving Circle members receive council updates, have an opportunity to volunteer, learn about our programming, vote and award grants to council-specific Girl Scouts of Northern California’s programs, and hear how their collective contribution is elevating the Girl Scout experience in Santa Clara. Making a difference together!
