Leadership experiences for girls are what make Girl Scouting unique. We help every girl, everywhere, discover who she can be, what she can do, however she chooses. Through real leadership programs, girls are given the opportunity to try on different roles and grow into the ones that fit her best – making her the leader in her own life.
“…I have learned so much more about myself, my abilities, and my strengths. I have learned I can be independent and I learned that I can be a leader.”– Danielle, Gold Award Recipient
Girl Scouting is made possible through the support of individuals, Girl Scout families, neighbors, community leaders, foundations, corporations, civic organizations, government agencies, and United Way. Whether funds are used for activities such as financial assistance or the delivery of our programs, the investment made by those in the community is making a difference one girl at a time. We are truly grateful for each and every financial gift that benefits the girls we serve.
Over 100 years ago, a woman with a revolutionary idea told the nation that she had something for all girls. That woman was Juliette Gordon Low, and the gift she brought to women has grown to become the world’s preeminent leadership organization for girls.
Juliette Low’s vision is as relevant today as it was in 1912:
Today, Girl Scouts of North East Ohio is keeping Juliette’s vision alive and moving into the future.
“[Girl Scouts] changed my direction in life. I learned not to give up, to be flexible, and it proved to me that one person really can make a difference."– Nicole, Gold Award Recipient
There are many reasons to give to Girl Scouts. You must know at least one: a daughter, granddaughter, niece, relative, or friend. There are 40,000 reasons in our council alone.
It costs between $200 and $300 per girl per year to provide the leadership experience of Girl Scouting. Leadership, environmental education, self-reliance, economic self-sufficiency, and teamwork are but a few of the valuable lessons girls learn in Girl Scouts. Each girl enrolled in a Girl Scouts of North East Ohio activity benefits from your generosity, through membership subsidies, troop start-up funds, service unit allocations, camperships, volunteer training, parent guides, and program fees.
Your gift to support Girl Scouting will have a dramatic impact on the lives of girls in Northeast Ohio. When you contribute, you invest in the future of 40,000 girls – and in your own. Today’s girls will become the CEO’s, bankers, doctors, lawyers, police, engineers, scientists, teachers, mayors, parents, and leaders of the future. The girls you support today are destined to become women of courage, confidence, and character who will make the world a better place.
