Why We Give
When you make an investment in Girl Scouts with your gift of time or financial support, it has far-reaching impact. Because of you, we have re-opened a camp, increased investments in camp and program center properties, and focused on volunteer and financial support for more girls across our 19 counties. Your support matters!
Every day, GSNorCal Girl Scouts are learning new skills and exposed to new ideas. Girl Scouts in our Discover Together program expanded their STEM learning when they established a community garden at their school. They studied plant development cycles, the local ecosystem, and toured a local nature education center. The troop decided to build a greenhouse for the garden, and the Girl Scouts are using this project to work toward their Bronze and Silver Awards.
Our programs and events bring together generations of Girl Scouts and community members. Girl-led events like the Climate Action Conference and annual Lead the Way conference bring together Girl Scouts, professional mentors, and community volunteers. These relationships often spark actions toward positive change.
Supporters of GSNorCal share a common goal: to help create girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place. Every year hundreds of girls experience Girl Scouts through our community-based programs supported by your donations. Girl Scouts from all over our Council receive financial support to attend special events, travel with their troops, and attend camp.
Our supporters are a diverse group. From philanthropist Mackenzie Scott and her historic gift of $4.9 million dollars, to the Girl Scout donating $25 from her cookie earnings, to an alum giving to support a beloved camp, your gifts come in all sizes. Thank you for your continued investment and energy as we journey towards building a Council where more girls and families believe Girl Scouts is for them. Your support shows that Girl Scouts matters—thank you!
All of this was made possible by the generous support of our families, volunteers, staff, and incredible donors. Thank you for standing with us to build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make our world a better place. You can download our Annual Report here.
