For Every Girl

Donate

Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes is offering free Girl Scout membership to all new girls through March of 2021. For Every Girl is how we are “meeting the moment” in a time when we are challenged in how we come together, free membership for all first time Girl Scouts allows families to try us out with no financial commitment.

This is a temporary expansion of our robust financial assistance; sharing with the community that we are removing all financial barriers for being a member and providing any girl who wishes to be a Girl Scout a no-cost membership to join!

Why are offering this promotion?

What Girl Scouts offers is more important now than ever before. Girls in our community are facing challenging circumstances.

  • Virtual classrooms and the risk of learning loss
  • Pain and reckoning with racial injustice
  • Disrupted routines and isolation from social distancing
  • Household financial hardship and personal stress impacting mental health and well-being

Fortunately, Girl Scouts helps girls meet these challenges. Our focus on building community and sisterhood, support and appreciation for everyone’s unique value, and rising to meet tough times what Girl Scouts has always done.

How will free membership for all new members help girls?

We want there to be no hesitation in joining Girl Scouts in this challenging time. By offering free membership, unilaterally to any new interested girl member, we remove any barriers to join.

We’re confident that Girl Scouts provides the tools to thrive and assist with the recovery of our community. Our program model helps girls build self-esteem, gain critical thinking skills, learn to advocate for themselves as they navigate the unknown, and provides a safe place where girls learn how to deal with emotions.

Girl Scout Financial Assistance Program

Some would say a $25 GSUSA membership is nominal. However, we know that for some families there is no nominal fee, rather fees can be a monumental financial barrier. Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes will pay the membership fee to GSUSA to remove any financial barriers to participation, plus additional costs that a family could incur through participation in Girl Scouts.

We believe the Girl Scout opportunity should be available to all girls no matter their circumstances. Every Girl Scout, new or returning, has the opportunity to participate in Girl Scouts through our financial assistance program. Our council provides support for membership, program and camp fees, troop dues, and uniform costs for any girl who needs it. Girls can be part of as many or as few programs as they wish. Our Council does not turn away any girl who wishes to be a Girl Scout!
