The Girl Scouts of Central Maryland (GSCM) are tackling a new project: car donations. Through a partnership between GSCM and Vehicles For Change, individuals can donate a car and simultaneously support the Girl Scouts.
In early 2011, when the GSCM and VFC began their partnership, the Girl Scouts reached out to their supporters to explain the value of donating a car to VFC. And their efforts have been successful: to date, four cars have been donated to VFC through the GSCM partnership. In exchange for their efforts, the Girl Scouts receive 40% of the net proceeds from the sale of cars donated on their behalf.
In fact, Vehicles For Change president Marty Schwartz recently presented the Girl Scouts with a check for $3,200 – which they earned from the sale of one vehicle. It would take a huge cookie sale to equal the success of this fundraising effort! The Girl Scouts plan to use the funds to enrich the programs and experiences that they offer young women.
