Do you want to do something BIG to support Girl Scouts of Northeastern New York in our centennial year but don’t have the funds to do so? What if there was a way to have a big impact without giving a dime?
It is possible! Berkshire Bank Foundation is holding a $25,000 giveaway and here’s how you can help GSNENY win some money:

The organization with the most votes in each Berkshire Bank region will receive a $5,000 grant. The remaining organizations nominated will be eligible for a drawing to receive one of five $1,000 grants.
Voting takes place through August 31, 2012 with winners announced in September.
If chosen, GSNENY will use the funds to offset program costs for girls living within Berkshire Bank’s service region by giving them $2 off the program fee when they register for a program listed in the fall gs Adventures until the funds are gone. Berkshire Bank’s service region includes Albany, Rensselaer, Saratoga, Schenectady, and Washington Counties.
