Oconto County Girls Scouts receive $3,500

Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes (GSNWGL) has received a $1,500 grant from the Leon H. and Clymene M. Bond Foundation to further the Girl Scout Leadership Experience in Oconto County.

The foundation is an endowed foundation committed to the growth and improvement of Oconto County and its surrounding areas, with over 5 million dollars given to support the local community to date.

This grant will provide critical funding to support the Girl Scout Financial Assistance Program, ensuring every Girl Scout has the opportunity to engage in transformative programs, learn invaluable skills, and make lasting friendships, regardless of financial barriers. Because of grants like this, we can lift up the next generation of women and help them find their pathway to success. These funds will directly contribute to covering program fees, uniforms, and more for Girl Scouts in need. GSNWGL is committed to ensuring their program is equitable, inclusive, and available to all Girl Scouts and families.

“We appreciate the Bond Foundation’s generous gift, support, and investment in Girl Scouts. Girl Scouts can change the world when we make space for them to grow and develop their potential,” said Kate Corey, GSNWGL chief development officer.

The Girl Scouts program is open to girls of all ages, and Girl Scouts encourages anyone interested in learning more about the program to visit gsnwgl.org.
