Help the Girl Scouts help others.


Girlhood is a journey and Girl Scouts
provides a compass.

Girls need our leadership development program as they chart the course and direction of their lives. An investment in today’s girls is an investment in tomorrow’s community.

“Being a Girl Scout has helped boost my self-confidence and has taught me to work as a team player. I hope every girl has a chance to experience Girl Scouts.”
– Sydney, 8th grade Girl Scout

To help girls find their way in a challenging world, we invite you to:

  • Secure programming through financial support
  • Volunteer and make a difference in the life of a girl
  • Provide any contribution of time, treasure or talent

Instilling the spirit of giving from Girl Scout to Girl Scout

The Sister to Sister Campaign – Girl Scouts Helping Girl Scouts

When troops, family, friends, and neighbors give to the Sister to Sister Campaign, they help make sure every girl who wants to be a Girl Scout has the chance and is supported by our Council – Sister to Sister.

Believe in her!

Did you know:

  • Girl Scouts, Hornets’ Nest Council supports more than 14,000 girls in eight counties?
  • The cost to support one girl for a year of Girl Scouting is about $275?

Each year, the Hornets’ Nest Council helps girls who want to attend camp, programs and events. In addition, the Sister to Sister campaign helps lower programming costs and assists adult volunteers with training fees (First Aid and CPR for troop leaders).

Your Sister to Sister contributions have an impact. THANK YOU!

Make the difference: Help her believe in herself. Through your support, you can help us to make the difference in another girl’s future by including her in Girl Scouts today. We can make a difference for another girl – Sister to Sister!
