WE BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF

G.I.R.L.


Girl Scouts changes lives. And some Girl Scouts take the lead and change our lives forever. BOARD OF DIRECTORS

Like Barbara J. Teal, formerly of Binghamton, NY. We know she enjoyed bird watching and playing bridge. Recently, we were reminded that in her youth, Barbara was a member of our legacy council, Girl Scouts of Indian Hills. She honored her Girl Scout leadership experience with a generous legacy bequest for the preservation and development of our Amahami (“little hills”) Adventure Center in Deposit, NY. Barbara’s gift allows us to share her love of nature and the outdoors with hundreds of girls each summer. (As no electronics are allowed, we imagine quite a few are bonding over card games in their cabins, too!) Through the generosity of alums and donors like Barbara Teal, our movement continues to have a profound impact on the girls we are honored to serve. This year, our movement embraced a new theme: the acknowledgment of the G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ within each of us. We apply this theme to everything we do and made great progress in delivering on our promise to membership. For example, we reimagined our cookie convention and troops saw a significant increase in their sales. We reintroduced the semi-annual program guide to make it easier for troops to plan their year out. We realigned our staff into four regions, and purchased new technology to enable member service in the field. We invested in our Adventure Center properties, adding a new paved road, new buildings, and newly improved facilities for better experiences. We initiated traveling stores and popup boutiques to better serve outlying areas of our Council. We found new ways to recognize and support our volunteers. Our work is far from complete. Girl Scouts continues to evolve as the needs of our membership change. We are investing in our properties to use them year-round, and partnering with community organizations in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) to deliver more robust programming to our members. Our outdoor programs are challenging and encourage girls to take calculated risks that encourage leadership. Girl Scouts is the best leadership experience for girls for one reason. It works. Why? It’s G.I.R.L.– led. Since our founding we’ve had plenty of competition; 105 years later and we’re stronger than ever because of our laser-focus on one thing: the girls. Thank you for your continued support,

Highest Awards THE HIGHEST HONORS A GIRL SCOUT CAN EARN. All three awards - Gold, Silver and Bronze - give girls the chance to do big things while working on an issue they care about, to inspire others, and to leave a lasting impression on their community.

Girl Memberships

Program Supplies & Assistance

Your support stays local to GSNYPENN and has a direct impact on the lives of girls and adults across our Council region. Did you know a donation to our Council’s financial assistance fund helps cover the cost of favorite Girl Scout opportunities like camperships, a girl’s annual membership fee, vouchers for uniforms and patches, and travel and destinations? We are deeply appreciative of the annual support our Council receives from corporations, foundations, individuals, community chests, and the United Way. Last year, 2,731 girls who might not have had the means to join Girl Scouts had their annual membership dues paid for because of your generosity. Through your support, we also provided assistance to help 134 adult volunteers lead troops—because you cared enough to give to GSNYPENN.

192

Camperships

134

Adult Volunteer Memberships

For over a century, Girl Scouts have proudly worn uniforms that identify them as members of this distinctive leadership organization. Thanks to your gifts, 333 girls applied for assistance and received items such as their Start Up Kit, Guide to Girl Scouting, tunics, sashes, and vests from our Council. Girl Scouts and camping go together like chocolate, marshmallows, and graham crackers! Girls make memories that last a lifetime when they attend programs at our Adventure Centers. In 2017, your donations provided 192 camperships. Just imagine all of the friendships, memories, and laughter created because you gave girls the gift of camp! If you would like to make a donation to support one or all of these opportunities, please contact Angela Smith at 315.698.9400 ext. 2020 or asmith@gsnypenn.org.
