GirlGuiding NZ acknowledges that some girls may not be able to continue Guiding, or join, due to the financial impact of COVID-19 on their families. GirlGuiding NZ has established ‘We’ve Got You Girl’, a financial grant that relies on individuals donating funds to provide girls with access to Guiding experiences. Funds will primarily be used to cover term subscription fees. If you are reading this and are in a position to support the fund and its mission, you can do so via the link here.
Priority for access to funds, as they are available, will go to girls and their families impacted by changed circumstances affecting their ability to pay their term fees. Factors such as redundancies or job losses as a result of COVID-19 will be a top priority, along with other changed circumstances such as family illness resulting in financial hardship, as funds allow.
Current Girl Members
In allocating available funds, consideration will be given to the following factors:
Depending on the level of funds available and number of grants to existing members, consideration may also be given to applications from girls who are new to Guiding.
Acceptance of your daughter into Guiding will depend on whether a relevant unit has a place available for another girl to join that unit.
Places are allocated based on approved adult to child supervision levels in accordance with GirlGuiding NZ’s Safety Requirements for Programme Activities.
Closing date for Applications
Applications for Term 1 grants closed on Sunday 24 January 2021 and applicants have been informed of the outcome. Applications for Term 2 2021 will open on 5 April 2021.
If you are applying for a grant to continue in Explore Pippins or Explore Brownies, you can apply at any time. Only applications for Explore will be accepted outside of the above deadlines.
