Girl Scouts receives $15,000 grant from The Denver Foundation

Girl Scouts of Colorado recently received a $15,000 grant from The Denver Foundation to support the organization’s outreach programs for girls in underserved areas of Denver, Adams, Arapahoe, Douglas and Jefferson counties. Girl Scouts’ outreach programs in these areas serve 1,400 girls in low-resource schools, affordable housing communities and detention centers.

“Girl Scouts of Colorado’s outreach programs help us fulfill a vital role in our community — helping provide all girls, no matter their background or their resources, the opportunity to participate in Girl Scouting,” said Stephanie Foote, president and CEO of Girl Scouts of Colorado. “We deeply appreciate The Denver Foundation’s long-time support of Girl Scouts and the programs we provide for girls in low-resource communities.”

The Denver Foundation is a community foundation dedicated to improving life in Metro Denver through philanthropy, leadership, and strengthening the community. Last year, the Foundation awarded more than $47 million in grants. The Denver Foundation has three primary roles: stewarding an endowment to invest in meeting current and future needs for the Metro Denver community; managing more than 900 charitable funds on behalf of individuals, families, nonprofit organizations, and business; and working with community and philanthropic leaders to address core challenges that face Metro Denver.

Girl Scouts was founded nationally in 1912, and is today the premier all-girl leadership development organization in the country. Girl Scouts offers girls a variety of leadership-based programs and activities that promote self-esteem and confidence, life skills and academic skills, healthy lifestyles, team-building, community service and much more. This year marks Girl Scouts’ 100th anniversary, known as the “Year of the Girl.” There are many ways to get involved in supporting Colorado’s current 30,000 Girl Scouts and 9,000 adult volunteers in fulfilling our mission of building girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place.
