Income to support our vision is received from our famous cookie program, other product program activities, program fees, and shop and
product sales, grants, and the United Way. Contributions from individuals, Family Partnerships, community organizations, foundations,
corporations, and individuals help support volunteer training and membership extension programs to reach more girls. One-third of the girls in
Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana receive financial assistance in order to participate in Girl Scouting.
