STATEMENT ON BSA CHAPTER 11 BANKRUPTCY
Girl Scouts of Connecticut has always has been a completely separate and independent nonprofit organization from any other youth-serving or scouting organization and is not now and has never been affiliated with, partnered with, a subsidiary of, or otherwise engaged with any other youth-serving or scouting organization.
Nationally, Girl Scouts of the USA and Boy Scouts of America were founded separately, incorporated separately, and have existed as two completely separate and distinct organizations for more than a century. That has not changed, nor will it ever. Girl Scouts of the USA does not share or overlap membership or finances with Boy Scouts of America. This bankruptcy filing by BSA does not have any financial impact on Girl Scouts’ finances, which are strong.
Girl Scouts is proud of its more than 100 years of dedicated and expert service to girls—and girls only—in an environment that is girl-led; girl-focused; supportive of girls’ positive development; and, above all, safe! As the single-largest and best girl leadership development program in the world, we remain committed to our mission of serving girls.
