Dear Girl Scout donor,
Girl Scouts of Colorado saw change and prosperity in 2014 because of the support of people like you lifting up our girls and our organization. This was the year when all of the hard work of making smart, yet sometimes difficult, financial decisions paid off for the girls of Colorado! We are in the best financial shape we’ve seen since we became Girl Scouts of Colorado in 2007.
We are bolstered by a growing endowment fund that will sustain our leadership experience for girls in perpetuity, fueling our program on interest income generated by investments from our major donors.
Girl Scouts of Colorado made the difficult decision to list for sale the property that was experiencing the greatest financial losses every year, Magic Sky Ranch, near Red Feather Lakes, and we celebrated the memories made at Magic Sky during a closing ceremony at the end of the camp season. The news that in summer of 2015, we would bring resident camp back to Sky High Ranch near Woodland Park was met with overwhelming enthusiasm.
With our staff more active in the field and making smarter use of technology, we were able to downsize office space in Colorado Springs, Pueblo and Denver. The sale of our corporate office on Broadway resulted in a move to more efficient, professional space in Denver, and a great financial gain for the girls through our endowment.
The changes of 2014 position Girl Scouts of Colorado for continued prosperity in 2015, with the resources to strengthen Girl Scouting in the state for our volunteers and our girls. Thank you for your part in making it possible and your continued support!
