I Can’t Wait to…Invest in Girls

November 11, 2014

By Addie Moody, Fund Development Coordinator

 

It’s “Back to Troop” time, and that means thousands of girls and their leaders across eastern and central North Carolina are in the process of planning a year of fun, adventure, and service. As a former membership director, I know how exciting this time of year is for our girls and our leaders. There is so much to prepare, so much to be excited about, and so much to hope for…

And this “Back to Troop” season, as the new Fund Development Coordinator, I’m encouraging you to add just one little thing to your list this year: Help provide the Girl Scout experience to other girls by making a gift to the Family Partnership Campaign.

What is the Family Partnership Campaign? Great question! The Family Partnership Campaign is a means for us to raise critical funds that stay within Girl Scouts – NC Coastal Pines and directly support girls and Girl Scout programming.

However, our Family Partnership Campaign is more than just a fundraiser. It is an opportunity for our Girl Scout family – and the family of our Girl Scouts – to say, “I support Girl Scouts. I believe in what we accomplish together and I appreciate the experiences that Girl Scouting has afforded my girl.”

Who are the chief investors in the Family Partnership Campaign? You are our closest stakeholder – our troop leaders, volunteers, and Girl Scout families.

Troop Leaders support the campaign because they’ve seen the power of Girl Scouting first hand as they watch their girls grow. They also know that supporting Family Partnership means making sure that the program is sustainable for more girls down the road.

Families give too because they have seen the positive benefits firsthand. They know their gift helps ensure that a strong Girl Scout program continues for their daughter, granddaughter, neighbor, or niece. They are grateful for a program that is helping their girls grow strong, capable, and confident.

What does my gift support? Gifts to the Family Partnership Campaign support a range of programs and opportunities: camp properties and programs, girl programs, volunteer support and trainings, and provide financial assistance to girl and adult members who would not otherwise benefit from Girl Scouting. Moreover, your gift supports the Girl Scout experience for the girl in your life. No matter what programs she has participated in, she has been touched by the Family Partnership Campaign.

How much should I give? Any size gift will make a difference and says you support the future of Girl Scouting. Just $15 covers the cost of membership for one of our Girl Scouts who receives financial aid from our Council. A larger gift of $250 can send a girl to a week-long summer camp that will change her life forever.

A gift to the Family Partnership Campaign is an expression of your commitment to investing in leaders now, and in the future. So, as you prepare your girl for this upcoming Girl Scout year, please consider becoming an investor today and providing those opportunities to another girl!

I Can’t Wait…To Support Our Girl Scouts!

September 26, 2013

By Mary Jo Van H., Family Partnership Coordinator volunteer, Wake 13

GSNCCP-ICantWaitTo-MagentaAs a 20-year veteran Girl Scout, adult volunteer, Family Partnership coordinator and Family Partnership donor, I can’t wait to experience all the fun and exciting things that lie ahead this year for our Girl Scouts and their families!

I can’t wait to tell everyone why they should donate.

I can’t wait to show the bang they get for their buck.

I can’t wait for everyone to know that 86% of every dollar donated goes to program services.

Donations to Girl Scouts – NC Coastal Pines’ Family Partnership Campaign are important because EVERY girl deserves the opportunity to participate in Girl Scouts.  It assures that being a Girl Scout is affordable.  Imagine having to pay $180 per year – the cost to support one girl for one year.

Many years my family would have struggled and in all likelihood, my oldest would not have been able to grow from a Girl Scout Daisy to a Girl Scout Senior, earn her Girl Scout Silver and Gold Awards, or be serving as the Girl Scout leader that she is today without the support of this campaign.  Even some of the fees associated with required trainings for certain activities or volunteer roles, despite being low, would have been a financial strain for our family.

GSNCCP_FPC_Magnet-4C croppedWith Family Partnership, I was able to become the Girl Scout leader I wanted to be and participate in all the wonderful experiences that Girl Scouting provided my daughter and my troop (and me)!

I can’t wait for everyone to know that by giving to Family Partnership, they ensure our leaders supported; they ensure our camps affordable for all girls; they ensure our events accessible to our Girl Scouts and their families; they ensure our volunteers are well trained; and most importantly, they make certain our Girl Scouts have every opportunity to grow into Tomorrow’s Leaders.

There are many stories of why adults participate in this campaign.  Hear from supporters in this video and you’ll understand why you should give to Family Partnership. You’ll be the one saying “I can’t wait to contribute to Family Partnership.”

And if you can’t wait another minute, donate now!
