Ways to Invest in Girls

At Girl Scouts, we believe that when girls succeed so does society. We provide girls with a place to discover their passions, find their voice, and make positive impact in their communities. These girls make the world a better place! Help us ensure that every girl develops the confidence that Girl Scouts nurtures. An investment in Girl Scouting is broader than a cause or a cure. It is a commitment to the next generation of self-sufficient and capable women. There are so many ways to support Girl Scouts of Northwestern Great Lakes. Our Council accepts cash, checks, credit cards (online), or gifts of stock. One hundred percent of every dollar donated stays with our Council to support local Girl Scouts.

Honors & Memorials

Was your grandmother a Girl Scout? Maybe your favorite aunt just loved causes which supported girls and women. Consider showing your appreciation of their love of Girl Scouts on a special occasion or honor the memory of a loved one though a gift to GSNWGL. Simply choose the tribute box on our easy online donation form.

Financial Assistance for Girls

Research shows that, compared to women who were not Girl Scouts, Girl Scout alumnae have more supportive relationships, attain higher levels of education, earn higher incomes, and feel more optimistic about their futures. We believe this opportunity should be available to all girls no matter their circumstance.

Today girls face many challenges and intense pressures and more than ever, girls need the experience Girl Scouting provides. When you give to Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes, you are directly contributing to our Mission of build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who help make the world a better place.

With your financial support, we can reach out to more girls and give them the one-of-a-kind Girl Scout Leadership Experience! Your donation to Family Partnership goes directly to our financial assistance program which covers the cost of camp sessions, events, and all the expenses of joining a troop. Our Council does not turn away any girl who wishes to be a Girl Scout and generous support from families like yours help make that possible.

Support Camp and Outdoor Experience

Girl Scouts believe that camp and the outdoors are for every girl.  And while we work to keep camp affordable, there are girls whose financial situation is such that is not possible. Each year we provide camp scholarships so that girls in financial need can attend camp. We continue to do so because of the financial support of individuals like you. Every dollar makes a difference in the lives of girls. Help girls learn about this amazing world we live in, make life-long friends, and build their confidence while they try new things at camp with your gift to the Campership Fund. Thank you for your support!
