How we help
Supporting the Olave Baden-Powell Society makes a real difference to the lives of girls and young women globally
OB-PS helps to provide stability to WAGGGS for the future of the international Movement of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts and helps ensure WAGGGS is able to achieve the goals set out in its Strategic Plan. OB-PS provides core funding as well as assisting with exciting projects, programmes and campaigns.
The Olave Baden-Powell Society supports WAGGGS in two ways:
- Through donations to the WAGGGS core areas of Membership Development, Advocacy and Leadership Development where donations are used directly for day-to-day operations.
- Through donations to the WAGGGS Designated Fund, which provides WAGGGS with enough interest income to cover about one twelfth of its operations.
Following their initial contribution OB-PS supporters and also non-supporters can support our fundraising campaigns to enable additional activities or projects for girls and young women.
Supporters and non-supporters can also give to the Anne Scott Fund, which provides Girl Guides and Girl Scouts with small grants for their participation in WAGGGS programmes and visiting WAGGGS World Centres.
Please download the OB-PS Annual Report for more information about OB-PS Donations.
"I want to give a little back... my Girl Guiding years helped to shape who I am today, and in return I wish to be part of a group such as OB-PS that empowers young women and girls to achieve their fullest potential, and become leaders of tomorrow. If you train a Girl, you train a Nation. If you educate a Woman, you educate a Nation."
