Gifts4Girls, GirlsGoTech, Healthy Girls, Smart Cookie, Fresh Air and House Lights are opportunities to support activities, financial assistance for girls and services that are essential to the success and spirit of Girl Scouting.
Provides financial assistance with Girl Scout membership fee, Girl Scout uniform components, Journey books and other educational materials, and start-up funds for new troops.
Provides financial assistance for girls to participate in STEM programs such as Minds for Design, Engineer IT Girls and other science and technology programs.
Underwrites the cost of programs that address some of the most critical issues girls are facing today: eating disorders, teen pregnancy, self-injury, drug abuse and self-esteem.
Selling Girl Scout cookies introduces girls to the fun and responsibility of running a business, and teaches them leadership skills they can use now and in the future. The Smart Cookie Fund provides resources to take entrepreneurship one more step, underwriting programs like Challenge & Change to teach older girls social entrepreneurship skills—networking with community leaders, building community capital, and taking action to make important, lasting community changes that affect the quality of life of all residents.
Provides financial assistance with camp fees (Camp Azalea Trails, Camp Forward Motion , etc.) to ensure that every girl who wants to experience the beauty of nature has the opportunity to go to camp. We also encourage donations to provide funds for camp maintenance and improvements so campers are assured of a safe, comfortable camp experience.
Girl Scouts of San Gorgonio Council is second in the nation in the large percentage of cookie revenue returned to troops from cookie sales. We seek funding for Council operations—to pay for such necessary items as utility bills, property insurance, auto maintenance and gasoline—from other sources, including individuals, corporations, and private foundations. The Council is actively seeking a gift or grant of $100,000 to convert our Plum Lane headquarters building to solar power, which will save an estimated $30,000 per year.
