Funding for Girl Scouts of Western Washington helps provide critical resources, opportunities, and support for our youth and volunteer members as they change the world. Learn where our funding comes from and how it helps sustain our trailblazing Girl Scout members and community for generations to come.
This financial information reflects only our earned income—not the countless hours and contributions from our thousands of volunteers and community members who make Girl Scouting possible.
Our funding comes from five primary sources.
|2021 Actual||2021 Budget||% to Budget||% of Actuals|
|Product Sales (net COGS)||$10,252,385||$14,873,200||71%||69%|
|Retail (net COGS)||$152,114||$228,317||67%||1%|
*Other Income includes the $2.4M sale of DuPont. Those proceeds were placed into our investment fund.
The second year of the COVID-19 pandemic had a far more significant impact on the organization than 2020. Loss of in-person school recruitment and program opportunities resulted in lower membership numbers, significantly impacting our product program sales and program fee revenue. Thanks to our community, we met our fundraising goals, and our Paycheck Protection Plan (PPP) loan was forgiven. Combined with cost-cutting, we ended our year modestly in the black.
Our expenses fall into three main categories:
|Girl Scout Programming||Management and General||Fundraising|
Changes in Funding from FY20 to FY21:
Girl Scout Programming = Impact
Most of our expenses (80%) benefit Girl Scout youth and adults through direct services and support.
Management and general expenses help keep our services available and accessible.
FY21 Capital Investments = $217,703
