This Year's Project: Financial Assistance for 20 Girl Scouts in Siouxland


About Our Organization

It is our mission to build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. Through Girl Scout programs, girls are exposed to many opportunities to try new things and get out of their comfort zones, figure out what they are drawn to, and see women in careers they didn't know existed. Girls cannot dream what they cannot see, and Girl Scouts helps them see the limitless possibilities. 

 



Current Project: Financial Assistance for 20 Girl Scouts in Siouxland




Girl Scouts of Greater Iowa provides financial assistance for girls living below the poverty line to join Girl Scouts. Scholarships are 100% locally funded by compassionate supporters like you. In the 2018-2019 school year, 117 girls in Siouxland receieved financial assistance. There is a growing population of girls who need financial assistance to join Girl Scouts.

We need your help. We are receiving new scholarship applications every day.

Every $55 gift received directly translates into a year of membership and a uniform to proudly display their hard-earned STEM and outdoor badges for a Girl Scout in need. Help impact 20 Girl Scouts in Siouxland by donating today!

    The Girl Scout Leadership Experience is a collection of engaging, challenging, and fun activities like earning badges, going on awesome trips, selling cookies, exploring science, getting outdoors, and doing community service projects. At Girl Scouts, girls get to lead their own adventures and team up with other girls in an all-girl environment to choose the exciting, hands-on activities that interest them most. The idea is to learn by doing, and at Girl Scouts, we do lots of it. Along the way, girls gain important skills in four areas that form the foundation of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience: 1) Science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM); 2) Outdoors; 3) Life Skills; and 4) Entrepreneurship. While girls may be exposed to these subjects at school, in other youth programs, or even on their own, at Girl Scouts girls experience them in a unique way that puts them on a path to a lifetime of leadership, adventure, and success. And because our program is girl-led, girls decide what they’ll do, together.

     

    Girl Scouts is for every girl. Girl Scouts of Greater Iowa (GSGI) provides financial assistance for girls who would otherwise not have the opportunity to join Girl Scouts. For families needing the assistance, the process is simple. For girls who want to go to camp, GSGI helps with camp scholarships too! The membership fee to join Girl Scouts is $25. The uniform costs approximately $30. Our goal of raising $2,000 will provide financial assistance 36 Girl Scouts in Siouxland. Will you join us in giving the gift of Girl Scouts to girls who need it most?
