Girl Scouts of Southeastern New England Receives $75,000 Donation from Amica Companies Foundation

WARWICK, R.I. – Girl Scouts of Southeastern New England (GSSNE) received a $75,000 donation from Amica Companies Foundation in a check presentation on Friday afternoon at GSSNE’s new headquarters in Warwick.

The donation will help establish the Girl Leadership Experience Center, a girl-led hub of creativity, connectivity, exploration and inspiration located at the headquarters. The center will offer programming in six key areas: making a difference, life skills, travel/adventure, camping/outdoor skills, global citizenship and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, the arts and math).

The center is currently used for meetings and programs on a limited basis. However, through donations to the capital campaign, Girl Scouts is hoping to fill the space with interactive technology that would allow girls in the center to connect with girls at urban satellite locations, camps and throughout the world.

“We were looking for that first big donation, and we’ve been blessed with Amica’s support,” said Neil M. Stamps, CEO of Girl Scouts of Southeastern New England. “We want to continue moving toward our capital campaign objectives.”

“One of the goals is to have state-of-the-art technology in the Girl Leadership Experience Center,” said Lisa DeCubellis, a vice president in the claims department at Amica Insurance and chair of GSSNE’s Board of Directors. “We want to build girls of courage, confidence and character, and we need the funding to support that goal.”
