Campaign for Girls in Arizona
Girl Scouts is the nation’s premier leadership organization for girls, with a history that goes back more than 100 years.
We help girls learn the necessary skills to successfully navigate in an increasingly complex world. Girls benefit from connecting with her peers in an environment where she can build the confidence and skills she needs to become a leader.
The Campaign for Girls in Arizona will allow us to serve more girls, train more adult volunteers, expand our programs and create a new Leadership Center in south Phoenix.
Our comprehensive campaign goal is to raise $15 million in philanthropic support. This will enable us to significantly expand and enhance the Girl Scout experience for more girls.
We plan to:
- Reach more girls across Arizona, especially in underserved populations and communities, including Latino, tribal and faith-based communities.
- Develop and support new adult volunteers to serve Arizona’s girls. This includes enhanced volunteer training, new ways for adults to contribute to girl programming, and opportunities for volunteers to explore their own leadership.
- Expand our innovative programs to support new and enhances program elements in our five key focus areas: Financial Literacy, Healthy Living, Environmental Leadership, Global Citizenship and Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM).
- Transform Camp Sombrero to enhance the Girl Scout Leadership experience. Camp Sombrero, located at the base of South Mountain Preserve, is owned by the Council. We will use this 14.5 acre site to build a new Leadership Center for Girls and Women. This urban program center, with camp appeal, will provide leadership training for girls and women, give girls their first camping experience close to home and serve the surrounding community groups, partner organizations and schools.

Our goal for The Campaign for Girls in Arizona is to help create a more level playing field where girls in Arizona can share in the practice of leadership equality – for the betterment of everyone.
