How will your donation be used?
- While volunteers understand the importance of working with girls to encourage their interest in STEM, understandably many often feel daunted by the challenge. Donations will help bring resources to volunteers. This includes, but is not limited to designing trainings that better support the use of “It’s Your Planet, Love It!” journeys, creating STEM experiences at camps, and forging partnerships with mentors and organizations that can assist with STEM-focused program activities.
- One of Girl Scout’s greatest legacies is being a sister to every Girl Scout. Donations will also help support girls who might not participate in Girl Scouting because their family income is near or below the federal poverty level. Offering financial assistance to girls makes Girl Scouting a reality in their lives.
