How Your Support Adds Up
Financial contributions provide vital funding for the council's operations, including support for volunteer training and girl program activities.
Your gift provides an opportunity for 85,000 girls in greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana to discover their unique leadership skills, connect with others, and make a difference in their neighborhoods and communities. Girls learn to manage money; develop a passion for fitness; explore science, technology, engineering and math as a career path; and acquire a lifelong love of the environment.
Apart from the traditional troop model, the transformative Girl Scout Leadership Experience also extends to 1,600 girls in staff-led troops and 10,000 girls in underserved areas who participate in Girl-Scout programming through schools, community centers, and places of worship. Many members of traditional troops also receive financial assistance. Your support also makes this possible.

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.
