Ways to Give

Give Amazing!

Amazing is when an eight-year old girl roars with pride after starting her first campfire. Amazing is the internal spark a middle school girl feels after participating in a robotics lab. Amazing is watching the realization cross a girl’s face that this future is hers and she is stronger, braver, and more ready for it than she ever imagined.

Girl Scouts is all about giving girls experiences like these and more. Amazing is a big thing to promise. And we can't do it alone. Become part of our mission. Join us in investing in girls because their future is our future/ Give amazing? Together we will.

There are many ways to give to Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes!

If each family gave $4.00 per girl, we would reach our goal. However, not every family can give. A generous gift at one of these levels can help provide the Girl Scout Leadership Experience for a girl in your community.
