Girl Scouts of Greater Iowa has been selected to participate in USA Today Network’s “A Community Thrives” competition as an extension of our Show Love Campaign.
Between now and October 16, our goal is to raise $6,000 to go towards the Show Love Campaign. By doing so, Girl Scouts of Greater Iowa will become eligible for up to $100,000 in grant funding – all to go support local Girl Scouts!
There is no doubt that communities and families across our state have felt the emotional, social, and financial repercussions of the global COVID-19 pandemic this year. As a council, Girl Scouts of Greater Iowa would not have made it through these trials without support from our members and donors like you. In return, we want to ensure every girl has the opportunity to join Girl Scouts in the upcoming membership year. The sisterhood and safe space provided by Girl Scout programming is needed now more than ever.
It’s important to us to support girls and volunteers during these trying times and eliminate any barriers to participating in Girl Scouts by showing love. For the upcoming membership year, we are offering free membership for all girls and adult volunteers. The Girl Scout mission builds girls of courage, confidence, and character and with your help, we can put this mission into action by guaranteeing all girls can join Girl Scouts in a year when girls need it most.
This act of love does not come without a true cost to our organization. The $25 annual membership fee, normally paid by all new and returning Girl Scout members, supports the cost of technology, liability insurance, materials, and research in girl programming. Your support of Girl Scouts of Greater Iowa is more critical than ever- we need your help to waive registration fees for all members and continue providing high quality programs to girls across Iowa.
You can help eliminate the financial barrier for girls across Iowa to join Girl Scouts. Every $25 you donate to the Show Love campaign will fund the membership for one local Girl Scout.
Our annual fund fuels the mission of building girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place. An investment in Girl Scouting is broader than a cause or a cure; it is a commitment to the next generation of women leaders.
