Save the date: May 16 for the Go Fold the Gold Challenge

Go for the Gold Giving Day Challenge

Mark your calendars for May 16—our first-ever online giving challenge to support Girl Scouts!

Girl Scouts is the best girl leadership organization in the world. Why? Because, in our all-girl, girl-led environment, girls are always the number one priority. Through Girl Scouts, girls in grades K-12 engage in hands-on STEM, outdoor, entrepreneurship, and leadership opportunities designed just for them. All the while, they benefit from the support, friendship, and sisterhood of their trained Girl Scout mentors and sister Girl Scouts.

Your support makes it possible for our girls to become the world’s next leaders. Donate to Girl Scouts of Northeastern New York Go for the Gold Challenge on May 16 to ensure that every girl can become the leader, explorer, and adventurer that they’re meant to be.

What is the Go for the Gold Challenge?

The Go for the Gold Challenge is your chance to impact a Girl Scout's life. A gift of any size can make a difference in sending a Girl to camp, on a one-of-a-kind adventure, or simply to try something she wouldn't otherwise have a chance to do. If 159 friends and supporters make a gift of any amount on May 16, Girl Scouts of Northeastern New York receives $2,500 from an anonymous donor!

How Does the Challenge Work?

  • 159 gifts in 24 hours secures $2,500 from an anonymous donor for Girl Scouts of Northeastern New York
  • A gift of any amount is welcome! 
  • Why 159? Because that's how old our founder, Juliette Gordon Low, will be this year!
