support Girl Scouts because it is an investment in the future:
- Companies with female leaders in their executive ranks consistently outperform their industry peers.
- When today’s girls graduate from college, America will need three million more scientists and engineers. Programs in science, technology, engineering, and math now account for over half of all Girl Scout awards.
- The Girl Scout Cookie Program, a $715 million business—run by girls—teaches these young entrepreneurs vital life skills: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics.
Many corporations provide donations to organizations for employees' volunteer hours or through matching a financial donation made to the organization. Be sure to check with your company's human resources department to see if they participate in this type of program.
