BEDFORD, NH — Patricia Casey, director of Advancement at Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains (GSGWM) announced that the council has received a $50,000 matching challenge from a New Hampshire Girl Scout family.
The family, who wishes to remain anonymous, have pledged $50,000 toward GSGWM’s Unleashing Her Potential campaign once $200,000 has been raised by the council toward the same campaign between September 1, 2017 and September 30, 2018. The first $100,000 of the $200,000 goal must be committed by December 29, 2017. When the first milestone is met, the family will make a $25,000 matching gift of that calendar year.
“We recognize and value Girl Scouting as essential to providing girls with meaningful, innovative leadership programs,” said the donors. “Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains’ Unleashing Her Potential campaign is critical to ensuring that the girls of New Hampshire and Vermont have access to the best leadership development programs and resources.”
The Unleashing Her Potential campaign provides girls with meaningful, innovative leadership development programs and helps transform the council’s camp properties, allowing GSGWM to help the over 10,000 girls they serve to flex their leadership muscles, try new and exciting experiences in STEM and beyond, and discover the outdoors through hiking, camping, archery, and more.
“We’re thrilled to be given this incredible opportunity to help the girls of our council become the leaders of tomorrow,” said Patricia K. Mellor, CEO of GSGWM. “Our Unleashing Her Potential Campaign provides vital girl-centered learning in STEM, the outdoors, financial literacy, and abundant opportunities to develop valuable life skills.”
