Girl Scouts of Colorado is excited to announce The Carla Montana – Distinguished Military Veteran – Memorial Girl Scout Adventure Fund honoring its namesake, Girl Scouts, military service, and adventures through travel.
Carla grew up in a military family where service to one’s country and friendship to sister Girl Scouts were important values. Carla traveled extensively and had notable experiences both personally and professionally, but her Girl Scout memories were among her most cherished.
We are inviting Girl Scout supporters to participate in a challenge to raise a minimum of $10,000 by April 4, 2020, allowing GSCO to complete the endowment started with a generous donation from Carla’s family. Click here for more information and to make your donation online. Distributions from the endowment will provide Colorado Girl Scouts with scholarships enabling them to experience the learning, joy, and camaraderie acquired through travel and adventure. Additional details of the scholarship process will be made available once the endowment has been established.
The timing of this announcement coincides with the Month of the Military Child, which was established in 1986 and has been celebrated every April since. Girl Scouts of Colorado is proud of our commitment to military families and will be joining Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) by supporting local events in honor of the Month of the Military Child throughout April 2020.
We look forward to sharing with you the success of this campaign and the stories of the adventure it brings!
