Our donors invest in the Girl Scout program because they believe in what we do. Hundreds of donors including men, women, corporations, foundations, and United Ways partner with us to help today's girls become strong leaders. Thank you.
Xcel Energy, a proud partner of the Girl Scouts of Texas Oklahoma Plains since 2008, is an integral part of the communities they serve. The company’s generous support helps Girl Scouts explore STEM-based career and higher education opportunities offered throughout the Amarillo area. Xcel Energy literally connects communities with the energy they provide and also through their community outreach efforts.
This year, Xcel Energy Foundation’s gift supports Explore, Experience and Engineer a Career, an initiative to encourage girls' interest in STEM. This program targets girls in grades 4-12 with age-appropriate, interactive events and activities designed to not only introduce them to STEM fields, but also to provide guidance in pursuing a career in STEM.
“Xcel Energy is a great corporate partner and supporter of the Girl Scouts of Texas Oklahoma Plains,” says Becky Burton, GS-TOP CEO. “We can always count on them to support our work and leadership opportunities for our girls.”
Terry Price, Xcel Energy Senior Foundation Representative, says of the partnership:
“The future of our company depends on our ability to recruit skilled and well-rounded workers and leaders. And women will play an increasingly important role in guiding our company in the years to come. We’re grateful for the work Girl Scouts is doing to prepare our future workforce, and the future leadership of our communities. This is why we’re pleased to support Girl Scouts.”
Thank you to Xcel Energy for your continued support of girls and girl leadership!
