Partnership to Boost Diversity in the Venture Ecosystem

NEW YORK, Dec. 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) announced today the addition of Legendary Ventures to its corporate partnership program that funds Girl Scout Membership Scholarships.

In partnership with GSUSA, organizations can sponsor a year of Girl Scout memberships to provide girls with critical skills to become the leaders of tomorrow. Legendary Ventures' participation provides 200 Girl Scout membership scholarships to girls in low-income families.

"This year, we've seen families forced to make tough decisions about their daughters' out-of-school activities because of income loss. We are so grateful that Legendary Ventures is working with us to help girls reach their full potential," says GSUSA Deputy Chief Customer Officer, Jenn Hollern. Additionally, "Today, girls need Girl Scouting more than ever. We are thrilled to participate in a program that allows girls to gain the entrepreneurial skills necessary to succeed in the workplace," says Jayson Kim, General Partner of Legendary Ventures.
