Girl Guides as a not for profit organisation is supported by
the efforts of parents and interested parties who provide their time to
fundraise in support of activities or goods and services at reduced cost to
benefit the organisation, two formal bodies who plan and manage this effort are
the Trefoil Guild and the Support Group.
TREFOIL GUILD… retired Guides who wish to actively participate in the support of Girl Guides, meet regularly and participate in organised fundraising
SUPPORT GROUP… the Alice Springs Support Group consists of members elected to office at the AGM, meeting monthly the Group works toward fundraising to support core activities of Girl Guides in the District through various activities, as well as maintaining the Guide equipment and premises, as summarised in our Business Plan.
Core to the success of our support group are our parents who volunteer to assist in our girls activities, if you are interested in volunteering please review our calendar & events page or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Members of our community in both the public and private sector continue to provide substantial ongoing support to Guiding in Alice Springs, which recognize as central to our successes over the past 80+ years, and look forward to our continuing partnerships into the future.
