GirlGuiding NZ acknowledges that some girls may not be able to continue Guiding, join, or participate in additional events and activities due to financial challenges their families are experiencing. GirlGuiding NZ has a financial grant called ‘We’ve Got You Girl’, that relies on individuals donating funds to provide girls with access to Guiding experiences. If you are reading this and can support the fund and its mission, you can do so via the link below.
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 will be a top priority, along with other changed circumstances such as family illness resulting in financial hardship, as funds allow. This fund is also open for tamāhine of volunteers.
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. If your tamāhine is not a current member of GirlGuiding NZ, you will need to fill in the membership enquiry form as well as the We’ve Got You Girl application.
Acceptance of your tamāhine 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.
Applications for Term 3, 2023 grants will be opened on Thursday 13 July and closed on Friday 21 July. Applicants can be funded for a maximum of two terms; this is dependent on funds available. Please keep an eye out for our term 3 opening date below.
