  • Sponsorship Opportunities

    Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts created the Leading Women Award to recognize outstanding women whose accomplishments make them ideal role models for Girl Scouts, the leading women of tomorrow. The award honors the leadership qualities of courage, confidence and character that the Girl Scout organization strives to build in girls.

    More than 500 professionals from businesses, government, education, non-profits and corporations attend the Leading Women Awards, which was held on March 11 this year. The celebration included a community and network of executives and friends who support us and honor the accomplishments of outstanding women.

    In 2015, we were pleased to announce the creation of the Angela and Thomas M. Menino Campership Fund in tribute to our 2014 Leading Man, Mayor Thomas M. Menino. Funds donated will send at least one Boston girl to camp each summer.

    Sponsorship opportunities are available. Please contact Jennifer Perrone for more information.
