2019 Family Partnership

One of the fundamental truths about being a part of Girl Scouts is each girl becomes part of a family – a sisterhood of strong female leaders who make our world an extraordinarily better place! At the same time, each Girl Scout excels at whatever she puts into action because she of the phenomenal support she receives from her parents, siblings, grandparents, and her own extended family! 

Here at Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois, we believe it’s important to celebrate our families, in whatever form they may be. As parents and guardians, volunteers and leaders, you know firsthand the positive impact of Girl Scouting. Together, we can build girls of courage, confidence, and character, by supporting and fostering their development. 

We are once again asking you to help GSofSI to continue providing the best leadership programming for your Girl Scout and her 10,000+ fellow girl members locally with a gift to Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois’ Family Partnership Campaign.

Family Partnership donations stay right here in Southern Illinois, to support girls in our communities. Did you know that it costs approximately $315 per year to provide the Girl Scout Leadership Experience to each girl? The $25 membership fee goes to Girl Scouts of the USA and does not stay here in Southern Illinois. While product sales and program fees cover much of the cost of Girl Scouting, a gift of $50 will fulfill the costs of providing Girl Scout training and experiences for one girl for an entire year; $100 will help send a girl to camp for an entire week; and $500 provides one year’s membership for 20 girls in at-risk, low-income neighborhoods.

Thank you for giving the girl in your life
        the opportunity to be a Girl Scout!
