CEO and President
As President and CEO of Girl Scouts of Colorado, Stephanie Foote brings a wealth of government and business skills and connections to the organization. She is responsible for oversight of $28 million in assets, including five camps, three lodges, one service center and five leased office and retail spaces throughout the state of Colorado. In partnership with her executive leadership team, she manages an annual operating budget of more than $12 million and statewide staff of more than 100 full-time, part-time and seasonal employees who support 24,000 girls and 10,000 volunteers in 56 counties in Colorado.
Under her leadership, Girl Scouts of Colorado has made savvy financial decisions to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of the organization and place us on strong fiscal ground. Stephanie models business leadership for our girls, helping to establish an Endowment Fund at Rose Community Foundation to maximize the return on our investments and support the Girl Scout Leadership Experience statewide. In 2015, she established the Stephanie A. Foote Leadership Prize which is awarded annually to a Girl Scout who has completed her Gold Award in the current year and whose project is selected by an independent panel as an exceptional example of impact through leadership.
She served as Girl Scouts of Colorado’s Chair of the Board of Directors from 2007 to 2012.
