Family Giving Circle

FGC 2023 Large

Girl Scouts of Louisiana – Pines to the Gulf is launching a special group, exclusively for those we consider family, designed to raise essential funding that directly impacts local Girl Scouts and Girl Scout programming. The Family Giving Circle campaign is a way for the people who are closest to the cause, to join the Girl Scout movement in a unique way. Members of the Girl Scout family – including alumni, volunteers, parents, staff, and board members – are invited to support this campaign to become a member of the first-ever GSLPG Family Giving Circle and be a part of something extraordinary.

Girls are living through a transformative time, and while the last few years have brought unprecedented challenges to our communities, it has also proven the resilience and tenacity of our local Girl Scouts, and THAT is the POWER of Girl Scouting. As we cope with the effects of the recent past, we are more excited than ever to move forward TOGETHER. Your investment amplifies girls’ abilities to improve the world, regardless of their backgrounds, locations, or financial situations.

What is the Family Giving Circle?

The Family Giving Circle (FGC) is an exclusive group of individuals who contribute essential funding to directly impact local Girl Scouts and Girl Scout programming. Inspired by the long-standing tradition of a Girl Scout Friendship Circle, the GSLPG Family Giving Circle joins our Girl Scout family together with a passion to invest in a brighter future for our local Girl Scouts. This giving campaign is a way for the people who are closest to the cause, to join the Girl Scout movement in a unique way.

Where do the donations go?

All contributions go directly to support Girl Scout programs – both the traditional troop programs and community programs. In addition, Family Giving Circle funds support financial assistance for girl and adult members, new program development, volunteer training, development, and assistance, and maintenance and upkeep of Camps Bon Temps and Wawbansee.

Who can join the Family Giving Circle?

Members of the “Girl Scout Family” – including all alumnae, lifetime members, volunteers, parents, board and staff members. Our family members support the campaign because they believe in the Power of Girl Scouting and see the positive benefits firsthand. Each gift from our family ensures Girl Scouting for generations to come!
