Suited up for Astronaut Training, as part of our partnership with NASA and Kennedy Space Center
The donations of your troop parents and community partners to Girl Scouts of Citrus Council can make a difference in Girl Scouting by providing items needed for top quality programs for Central Florida girls. Did you know, it costs $275 to sponsor a girl in our Outreach Troops for a year of Girl Scout Activities?
Use this list when talking to parents about giving a donation to Girl Scouts.
Focus on the girls who will be helped! Be a good role model – donate yourself, and highlight your own donation amount. Plan to ask everyone to contribute at your 2 nd or 3 rd parents meeting – make it fun! Make sure they know their daughter gets a special fun patch for a $25 donation. Ask for a specific amount of at least $25.
Publicly thank those who donated. Nudge additional contributions from parents, and their extended families, via social media (Facebook, Yahoo!Groups) Send an email follow-up with the link for donations via our Online Council Store ( store.citrus-gs.org ) Share stories of the girls who’ve benefitted by GIFTs donation – Girl Scouts Changes Girls’ Lives!
Remember, it’s all about the GIRLS! Girl Scouting Changes Girls’ Lives!
