Daniel's Fund Grants Girl Scouts of Colorado Generous Gift

Colorado's Journal Advocate reports that Girl Scouts of Colorado announced last week that it received a $75,000 grant from the Daniels Fund to support programming and volunteer recruitment initiatives to bring the Girl Scout Leadership Experience to more girls in the state.

"The grant will enable Girl Scouts of Colorado to expand its ability to provide consistent enrichment programs to all Girl Scouts across the state, as well as assist us in recruiting a new type of Girl Scout volunteer to deliver them," said Jacky Noden, Vice President, Program Services for Girl Scouts of Colorado. "Our focus will be on recruiting short-term, or 'episodic' volunteers, from corporations, colleges, universities and community groups to help deliver our new innovative programming initiatives."

Bill Daniels, a pioneer in cable television known for his kindness and generosity to those in need, established the Daniels fund to provide grants and scholarships in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming.
