MPMF Impact
 Girls – Girls will see how the Girl Scout Law is
connected to their faith.
 Leaders - MPMF helps ADULTS to make the
connection between Girl Scouting and faith.
 Councils - MPMF can strengthen the partnership
between the local Girl Scout council and the faith
community.
 Congregations – They have an important role in
Girl Scouting
