Investing in girls improves economic development, social progress, and public health. Yet, only 7% of all philanthropic dollars fund programs that exclusively serve girls.
Your gift – in any amount – will help make an immediate difference for a New York City girl, and will help girls grow into active and engaged members of their communities.
You can help by making your gift to the Girl Scouts of Greater New York today!
Sponsor one of our youngest Girl Scouts at Cookie University, where she will develop skills for success, including money management, decision making, goal setting and business ethics.
Give ten low-income middle school girls from the Bronx the self-esteem they need to grow into courageous and confident young women by underwriting a day-long workshop focusing on their roles in the world, leadership skills, and learning to speak out against stereotypes and bullying.
Send four teenage girls to Camp Kaufmann, where they will learn teamwork at our challenge course, discover a love of science and nature in our outdoor classrooms, learn to swim, and develop heathy eating habits.
Sponsor a girl in our new 8-week summer program. Each camp will be based in a low-income NYC neighborhood, and will include excursions to parks, beaches, and outdoor spaces throughout NYC, giving girls — many of whom would not otherwise leave their neighborhoods — access to nature and outdoor programming.
Fund one team of elementary school girls in our year-long Robotics program, which gives them hands-on experience in engineering and computer programming while boosting their interest and confidence in STEM fields.
