Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) announced that Shelley Goode has joined the organization as the Chief Development Officer.

“I am thrilled to welcome Shelley Goode to the Girl Scouts of the USA team,” says Girl Scouts of the USA CEO Sofia Chang. “Shelley is an results-driven executive, thoughtful collaborator, and inspiring leader. Alongside our colleagues, volunteers, and partners, we will continue to lift and strengthen the work we do to empower this generation of Girl Scouts.”

As CDO, Shelley will focus on deepening the culture of philanthropy at Girl Scouts by leading a revenue-generating community with diverse funding streams including individual and alumni engagement, philanthropic giving, corporate partnerships, and foundation and government grants.

Shelley most recently served as chief development officer for the KIPP Foundation. KIPP is a nonprofit network of 280 college-preparatory public charter schools. She also served as vice president of resource development for Oxfam America, an organization that is part of a global confederation dedicated to fighting the injustice of poverty.

In her 30-plus years of experience, Shelley has served some of the world’s largest and most respected institutions—the nonprofit equivalent of Fortune 500 companies—in fundraising, marketing and communications, and nonprofit leadership. She is deeply familiar with the significant problems facing communities throughout the world and has promoted solutions and raised funds for issues that include women’s empowerment, STEM initiatives, poverty, affordable housing, and reintegration of veterans back into society. As a nonprofit leader, she has shaped policy and strategy at the C-suite level and worked with decentralized affiliates and partners to implement diversity- and inclusion-focused solutions.

Previously, Shelley served in leadership roles with Volunteers of America, the Smithsonian Institution, Spelman College, Syracuse University, and Johns Hopkins University. She currently serves on the boards of The College of William & Mary Foundation (Executive Committee), the Morgan Stanley Global Impact Funding Trust (MS GIFT), and The National Children’s Museum. She holds a B.A. in arts administration and political science from Mary Baldwin University in Staunton, Virginia.

“I’m honored to start the important work ahead at Girl Scouts of the USA and continue to provide more opportunities for young women across the country as they reach for new heights,” says Shelley.
