We want to take a moment to thank everyone who participated in #GivingTuesday and made it an overwhelming success, both for Girl Scouts of Western New York and the non-profit world as a whole.
Early results indicate that donations increased by nearly 40% over last year, for a total of $380 million raised in the United States. For those who gave to any charity, you were on of an estimated 3.6 million to donate. Talk about good company.
At Girl Scouts of Western New York, we saw both our number of donors and amount raised increase and we couldn’t be more excited. In fact, the total amount increased by more than 500%!
Words cannot express how grateful we are our supporters. Every donation helps us keep working toward our goal of building future female leaders. You’re helping to change the world, one dollar at a time.
