Treasuring the Past and Looking to the Future
In celebration of the 100th
Anniversary of Girl Scouts in 2012,
you have an opportunity
to secure the future of Girl Scouting
in Citrus Council by participating
in our anniversary endowment
and bequest campaign.
Leave a Legacy
By leaving a legacy to Girl Scouts of Citrus Council, you can have a lasting impact on girls in Central Florida. In celebration of Girl Scouts, we have created the Juliette Low Society. Juliette Gordon Low was the founder of Girl Scouts who had a dream and a vision. We want to fulfill her vision and dream for girls in Central Florida into the future. You can become a member of the Juliette Low Society with a bequest of $10,000. Please help us reach our goal of $100,000 in bequests by joining the Juliette Low Society today. Members will receive a special pin and know that they have helped change girls’ lives. With your gift your name will be engraved on a stone that will be placed under our legacy tree, setting the foundation for future growth.
$100,000 Endowment for Scouterships
With 100 gifts of $1,000 each we can change girls lives now and in the future.
At Citrus Council, Scouterships help girls who are economically challenged to participate in Girl Scout activities. Scouterships ensure all Girl Scouts equal opportunities to have impactful experiences that will help them develop their leadership skills. Girls who receive a Scoutership are able to acquire uniforms, badges, and program materials. Scouterships are also used to pay registration fees for special program events or help cover costs for a field trip or travel opportunities. With your generous gift, your name will be engraved on a leaf on our legacy tree displayed at our service center in Central Florida.
$100,000 Endowment for Camperships
With 100 gifts of $1,000 each we can provide a transformational experience at one of our camps.
For 100 years, camping has been an important tradition for Girl Scouts everywhere. Citrus Council provides opportunities for both day camp and resident camp experiences in locations throughout our six counties. While at camp, girls learn to work cooperatively in teams, take responsibility for themselves and participate in traditional activities like crafts, flag ceremonies and campfires. Also, girls can swim, canoe, kayak, sail, surf, fish, hike, and enjoy nature. Other activities include participating in environmental projects, letterboxing, geocaching, rock wall climbing and cooking over an open fire. And, of course, build long lasting friendships while making S’mores! With your generous gift, your name will be engraved on a leaf on our legacy tree displayed at our service center in Central Florida.
$100,000 Endowment for Camp Capital Projects
With 100 gifts of $1,000 each we can improve our camp facilities and enhance the girls’ experiences.
About Capital Projects
Citrus Council provides important camping opportunities at our 250 acre Camp Mah-Kah-Wee in Seminole County and our 24 acre camp on Merritt Island. These camps are enjoyed by more than 10,000 girls each year. At camp, girls practice leadership and problem solving skills on the challenge course, enjoy delicious family style meals in the lodge, and sleep in cabins or tents. Contributions to the capital projects endowment fund will allow us to improve our camps for the safety and enjoyment of our girls. This fund will help us to enhance our facilities so that girls with special needs can take full advantage of all the opportunities available at the camps. Further, it will permit us to add a new variety of camping experiences requested by our girls, such as tree houses, teepees and a teen technology center. With your generous gift, your name will be engraved on a leaf on our legacy tree displayed at our service center in Central Florida.
