The Girl Scouts raised more than just the $5.4 million.
Sometimes, that’s what capital campaigns do. They also raise consciousness. And confidence. They raise questions. They also offer the occasional surprise.

Before their recent campaign, the most money the Scouts’ Pacific Peaks Council had raised in a year was $108,000, said Executive Director Kathleen Houston.

The board of directors was considering a major campaign and commissioned a 1998 feasibility study. The results were positive, Houston said, but “we needed to do a little more to get ready.”
