Tell us about your connection to Girl Scouts.

My connection with Girl Scouts began in Fairfield, Al in the early 80’s. I often tell the story of how I was riding my bike around the local park and stumbled upon a Girl Scout event. I had three other siblings and my mom did not work. I knew that after I stopped to speak with the ladies at the table, I would not be able to join this organization because of financial reasons. Also, we didn’t have a car, so that meant no transportation to meetings and events. Being who I am, I filled out the form anyway :). About two weeks later, two ladies showed up at my door, inviting me to my first Girl Scout meeting at a local church. I was so happy to belong and blessed with the opportunity to “make new friends.”

What is the most valuable thing that Girl Scouts gives girls today?

Girl Scouts build LEADERSHIP SKILLS, people skills, and communication skills- all of what is need for success in life. This organization also teaches TEAMWORK and the value of working together and giving back.

Why did you join Daisy’s Circle?

I was once the kid that needed someone to donate to provide an opportunity for me. I never knew how important that was until I became an adult and realized that I would NOT be the woman I am today without those who gave selflessly and not knowing who they would touch by their donations. I work hard EVERY DAY to show those who have help ME throughout life that I appreciate it and that their good works paid off :). Now, it is MY turn to pay it forward.

What is the best thing about monthly giving?

Monthly donations help lower costs so that more of the donation goes to the girls.

Is there anything else you would like us to know about you?

I am forever grateful to Girl Scouts and I credit this organization for all that I have accomplished in life. I never had an opportunity to dress up much as a child, but when I put on that uniform for meetings, I felt as though I was SOMEBODY! Little things mean a lot. As long as Girl Scouts are around, I will continue to support this organization.

Named after Girl Scout founder, Juliette “Daisy” Gordon Low, Daisy’s Circle is Girl Scouts of Colorado’s monthly giving program. Funds raised through Daisy’s Circle provide financial assistance for girls and volunteers, support Outreach Programs and more.  For more information: https://www.gscodaisyscircle.org/

Tell us about your connection to Girl Scouts.

From Girl Scout Brownie Troop 54 in Wyoming to the present, Girl Scouts have been a part of my life. My fondest memories are of Girl Scout Camp and Wider Opportunities in the United States, Canada, and Norway. In high school, when I moved to the Mountain Prairie council, I was the first to earn my Gold Award there in 1981. I progressed through collegiate Girl Scouting at CSU and led my first Cadette troop in the Wagon Wheel council, and moved to Chipeta where I was Steamboat’s service unit manager until my boys grew into 4H age. I took a hiatus to be in their activities and now continue as service unit manager, Daisy and Cadette leader, Gold Mentor, and former GSCO Board Member and MCC member.

Why did you join Daisy’s Circle?

As a Lifetime Girl Scout, I continue to see the value of Girl Scouts in today’s world. I want to show my continued financial support for Girl Scouts, locally and statewide. As an avid volunteer, it’s only natural to put my money where my volunteer heart beats… Girl Scouts! AND I like the opportunity to join with other like-minded folks to support a movement that is growing and helping to change the world!

Why is monthly giving important?

Monthly giving makes it easy and shows consistent support. It is easy to change the monthly giving amount if circumstances change one way or another.

Why should other people join Daisy’s Circle?

Daisy’s Circle impacts the lives of our Girl Scouts, go-getters, innovators, risk-takers, and leaders. It helps to be sure no girl is left out, that exciting programming continues, and that we ensure a future for this movement for girls!

What is the most valuable thing that Girl Scouts gives girls today?

Girl Scouts gives girls a platform for leadership, a chance to learn together, explore in a safe and adventuresome environment, and experience friendships with a sisterhood of girls and women worldwide.

Why is it important to support Girl Scouts and other youth organizations?

Girl Scouts and other youth organizations give the opportunity to learn about our world and its opportunities, pitfalls, and rising stars. It’s an investment in the future!

Is there anything else you would like us to know about you?

My Girl Scout adventures are endless and they continue to grow each year as I take on leadership of another troop or another event or another mentoring role. As an adult, it’s just as important to me as it was when I was growing up. Many lives are touched by Girl Scouts, both girls and women, and community leaders. I enjoy pulling those worlds together by exploring the world of Girl Scouts!

Troop 66802 celebrates one year of Daisy’s Circle membership

Congratulations to Girl Scout Troop 66802 for celebrating one year as a Daisy’s Circle member! As the VERY FIRST Girl Scout troop Daisy’s Circle member, they are truly leaders and they are making a difference.

Joining Daisy’s Circle was the big first step to learning about philanthropy. They have continued down this path and are about to complete their “Philanthropy” badge. They have been learning about the many ways you can help people. They gathered coats, donated food, and of course, they helped other girls become Girl Scouts through Daisy’s Circle!

When asked if it makes them feel good to help others, the answer was a unanimous YES! They truly understand what it means to be a sister to every Girl Scout!

Daisy’s Circle: We met the challenge!

Thanks to you we met the full $25,000 goal and more.  As a result, Girl Scouts throughout Colorado will have the opportunity to become the G.I.R.L.s (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker,Leader)™ that we know they can be.

Daisy’s Circle: The bigger the circle, the bigger the impact

Named after Girl Scout founder, Juliette “Daisy” Gordon Low, Daisy’s Circle is Girl Scouts of Colorado’s monthly giving program.  Funds raised through Daisy’s Circle provide financial assistance for girls and volunteers, support Outreach Programs and more.

Girl Scouts of Colorado provides roughly $125,000 in financial assistance annually, 26% is funded by Daisy’s Circle members.  Financial assistance makes Girl Scouting possible for more girls, helping them to reach their full potential.  It is our goal to grow Daisy’s Circle enough  to fully fund this need.

The power of monthly giving is in the numbers.  Even a small monthly gift from a number of donors makes a big difference. Monthly donations help lower costs through automation and reduced mailings and creates an ongoing predictable cash flow.
It’s easy for you, it’s easy for us, and it makes a lasting impact.

Do you believe in Girl Scouts?  Do you believe that the Girl Scout experience can change a girl’s life?

At Girl Scouts of Colorado, we believe, and we want this experience to be available to every girl regardless of where in Colorado she lives or what her circumstances are.

Won’t you help us reach our goal of raising $125,000 annually by joining Daisy’s Circle?

The bigger the circle, the bigger the impact.
