Girl Scouts of Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois Endowment


Girl Scouts is the premier leadership organization for girls. Girl Scouts of Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois provides programs and services for nearly 20,000 girls ranging from five to 17 years old in the 31 Iowa counties and seven Illinois counties it serves. Along with its girl members, there are over 5,000 adult members in numerous volunteer roles.

With guidance from dedicated volunteers, girls participate in a range of programs that encourage them to discover, connect, and take action in their communities and throughout the world. Girl Scouts initiatives are centered on lessons in leadership, financial literacy, environment, healthy living, and STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math).

Girl Scouts builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.
