Via the Chronicle of Philanthropy: Girl Scouts Financial and Leadership Woes Threaten 100-Year-Old Group - "The charity faces a slip in donations, big losses in its pension plan, and fissures over its restructuring."

Girl Scouts and the Zombie Virus Part One - "for those who missed it, is the story of...<K. Shehan's>...initial shock on hearing of the proposed sale of the Girl Scout camp where I spent some of my childhood and young adult summers and my subsequent dismay at the current state of affairs of the Girl Scout Organization. Part 2 addresses the questionable sale of land and buildings donated to communites for the enjoyment of girls in those communities. Spoiler: There will be no appearances by Zombies in part 2-- theft from the girls is enough of a horror story --but perhaps a visit from beyond the grave by saddened donors will occur."

Girl Scouts and the Zombie Virus Part Two - "Stealing from Girls. Stealing from Communities."

Trefoil Integrity - - Girl Scouts of Northeast Ohio's website and articles. From the site: "Supporting and Promoting Girl Scouting in Northeast Ohio Since 2000" - their motto: "Girl Scouting - Worth Standing Up for". Their front page article is Girl Scouts: where are we going? And who picks the direction?

Also read Why Our Girl Scout Camps Are Being Closed - "The Girl Scouts are selling their camps, changing their program, and reportedly face serious problems with their pension liabilities. Has the iconic nonprofit lost its way?"
