Help the Girl Scouts help others.


Girlhood is a journey and Girl Scouts
provides a compass.

Girls need our leadership development program as they chart the course and direction of their lives. An investment in today’s girls is an investment in tomorrow’s community.

“Being a Girl Scout has helped boost my self-confidence and has taught me to work as a team player. I hope every girl has a chance to experience Girl Scouts.”
– Sydney, 8th grade Girl Scout

To help girls find their way in a challenging world, we invite you to:

  • Secure programming through financial support
  • Volunteer and make a difference in the life of a girl
  • Provide any contribution of time, treasure or talent
