Girl Scouts of the USA has received a $15 million grant from Lilly Endowment Inc. to support diverse membership growth within six Girl Scout councils serving Indiana girls. The funding will further the vision that every girl in Indiana will have the opportunity to live her best life physically, academically, emotionally, and socially through engagement in Girl Scouts.

The six Girl Scout councils, including Girl Scouts of Central Indiana, Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana, Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana, Girl Scouts of Northern Indiana-Michiana, Girl Scouts of Southwest Indiana, and Girl Scouts of Western Ohio, will work together in a newly formed coalition over a three-year period. The coalition will serve as an incubator to find creative solutions to reach and better support Hoosier girls and families in all 92 counties, with a particular focus on girls and families who have historically not engaged with Girl Scouts.
