Support Our Council
In 2012, we will mark 100 years of Girl Scouting. Our goal is to raise $1 billion.
We will give every girl the opportunity to be the leader she wants to be, to be the leader the world needs her to be.
Join us in making a promise to girls:
Every girl in this generation will reach her fullest potential.
Wherever she lives. Whatever challenges face her. However great the journey to what she can become.

Girl Scouts was founded in 1912 by Juliette Gordon Low. She believed passionately that girls should be given the same opportunities as boys to develop physically, mentally, and spiritually.
Juliette was a true trailblazer, and her visionary leadership created a strong foundation for the organization we would become:
She purchased a camp ten years before she purchased an office building.
Diversity and Inclusion
Integrated troops existed forty years before the Civil Rights Act was passed.
The International Council of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts was formed in 1919, the same year as the League of Nations.
As early as 1913, aeronautics and circuitry programming inspired girls to consider non-traditional careers.
Young Girl Scouts volunteered in hospitals, grew vegetables, sold bonds, and collected peach pits for use in gas mask filters during World War I.
