Anne Scott Fund
Grant opportunities for young women to deliver community projects and take part in international training events.
The Anne Scott Fund provides girls with the opportunity to take part in WAGGGS international events or programmes at a World Centre – an experience of a lifetime for any Girl Guide or Girl Scout!
Learning through non-formal education and taking action in the community has been at the heart of Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting since the Movement started. Named after a former OB-PS President, the Anne Scott Fund gives grants of up to £400 GBP to girls and young women under the age of 30 to take part in these international learning opportunities.
Have a look at the case studies to learn more about some of our young leaders' experiences and how they benefited from the Anne Scott Fund.
"I am very grateful to the Anne Scott Fund for sponsoring me to attend this event. I want every donor, or potential donor to know that their contribution, no matter how big or small, changes at least one girl’s life, or in many cases like mine, it affects and changes the lives of many. I will always be thankful to Anne Scott Fund for helping me change not only my life, but that of many other girls. Thank you endlessly!"
