Thank you!

We’d like to thank each person who donated to GSNI’s Travel Endowment on Giving Tuesday 2023. Thanks to your generosity, we reached our goal to add $15,000 to prepare Girl Scouts for a bright future as they travel to new places! Through travel, our Girl Scouts will expand their worldview, make friends, and foster a sense of independence. You made it possible, and we are so grateful!

Mark your calendars:

Giving Tuesday 2024 is December 3rd!
