Council programs and outreach are supported through GSCCC’s annual product sales programs and supplemented by corporate and foundation grants, endowments, individual donors, corporate sponsorships, and bequests. However, funds from these sources do not fully cover costs that GSCCC spends in order to:
- Provide outreach programs and scholarships to girls who would not otherwise be able to participate in Girl Scouts.
- Recruit, train and support volunteers.
- Maintain and improve council property.
Camp Arnaz: A 36-acre program center and camp in Ventura.
Alisal Program Center: An after school and summer camp program center in Salinas.
- Develop new, challenging and relevant programs that meet the needs of today’s Girl Scouts including outdoor, STEM, entrepreneurship and life skills.
GSCCC’s Development Team can meet with you to discuss various ways of giving that match your interests in leaving a lasting legacy for the future of girls and for girls of the future.
