Fall Fundraiser is Here!
Decades ago, Juliette Gordon Low, Girl Scouting’s founder, was
convinced that girls should learn the skills to earn their own way and
contribute to troop support. She wanted girls to learn skills that
would increase their self-confidence and that would add new dimensions
to their lives. Research shows that 78% of today’s Girl Scouts are
interested in becoming an entrepreneur in the future. The Fall
Fundraiser Program provides girls with the learning opportunities they
are seeking. As girls participate in this program, they will develop
essential skills such as goal setting, decision making, business
ethics, money management, customer service, people skills and so much
Will you RISE UP with us during this year's Fall Fundraiser Program and become a part of the largest girl-led entrepreneurial program in the world? The Fall Fundraiser Program begins September 23. Be sure to connect with your troop to pick up your Fall Fundraiser materials prior to the start of the program. Are you ready to rally?
Girls are invited to complete the GSHPA Virtual Rally to "be prepared" for this year's Fall Fundraiser Program.
