ToGetHerThere is rallying the nation around the cause of creating and supporting an environment in which girls can develop their leadership potential and grow into successful adults who make the world a better place. Financial support from friends in the community provides the funds GSSI needs to offer leadership experiences that can help ensure the future success of girls in GSSI's 11-county jurisdiction in southwest Indiana.
A gift to the Family Giving Partnership shows a Girl Scout how much her parents/guardians value her participation in Girl Scouts. FGP gifts benefit all girls in GSSI's 11-county jurisdiction. Families receive a special commemorative patch for a gift to the FGP which their Girl Scout can wear on her sash or vest. The names of donors to the Family Giving Partnership are listed in GSSI's annual donor newsletter.
"I Love Camp Koch" Club:
Evansville artist and Girl Scout Lauren Longest has drawn and painted lovely symbols of Girl Scouts and Camp Koch inside the Bungalow to make it a welcoming space for the younger girls. Evansville artist and former Girl Scout Ashley Ellen Frary designed a beautiful fairy image for the Enchanted Woods & Fairy Garden which GSSI staff used to develop a patch that will be given to each girl who participates. Girls will also receive a journal to record activities and memories of their visit.
An Enchanted Woods and & Fairy Garden program curriculum has been developed, along with a customized play written by Parker Ford of Posey County Troop 454, a story, a scavenger hunt, and fairy and nature activities that will allow girls to learn and play in this new area. Brownies can also earn badges.
With a commitment to extending the Girl Scout Leadership Experience to all girls who want to participate, the McKinney family has established the McKinney Fund for Girl Scouts. Donations to this fund support Girl Scouts of Southwest Indiana's Scoutership Fund, benefiting families experiencing financial hardship. Scouterships are available to cover a portion of the costs related to Girl Scout membership if there is need.
Planned Giving opportunity: The Juliette Gordon Low Society:
Network for Good is a "donor-advised fund," which is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization that collects contributions from donors and distributes those contributions to other nonprofit 501(c)3 organizations in good standing with the IRS as recommended by you, the donor. Your credit card statement therefore lists Network for Good and not the charity on this page because your donation is to our donor-advised fund. Network for Good then forwards the contribution to your charity on your behalf. As required by the IRS, Network for Good has exclusive legal control over donations to our donor-advised fund. All donations are final and may not be refunded.
