Family Partnership is the way our Council raises critical funds to provide the Girl Scout Experience to all girls throughout our 41 counties. Just a gift of $100 provides Girl Scout memberships to eight girls in our Girl Scout Community Outreach Program. We need your help in giving all girls the opportunity to enjoy the wonderful world of Girl Scouting. Each gift, no matter the size, will directly help our girl members and other girls who might otherwise not be able to participate.
Last year, donors had the opportunity to win an iPad3 for the 2012-2013 Family Partnership Campaign. We held a three month long contest where donors had to give $35 or more to be eligible to win the iPad. The drawing took place January 7, 2013, and we announced Shannon Gamber as our winner! Thank you to all who participated.
Good news- there are still some great incentives going on throughout the rest of the year for those of you who did not get the chance to participate in the iPad drawing. Currently, we have reached 42% of this year’s Family Partnership Goal. Give a gift of $35 or more you and will receive a Family Partnership Car Magnet showing your support of Girl Scouts – NC Coastal Pines. In addition, if a troop donates $200 or more, each girl in the troop will receive a new Family Partnership Patch.
