Other Ways to Give
Stock Gifts—Review instructions for Gifts of Stock and Securities.
Donor Advised Fund (DAF)—Recommend a grant be made from your DAF to GSNorCal. DAFs are an excellent way to both simplify your charitable giving and facilitate your strategic philanthropic goals.
AmazonSmile—You can help fund GSNorCal programs and activities when you shop online using Amazon. All you have to do is go to smile.amazon.com, and select "Girl Scouts of Northern California" as your charity of choice. Once you do this, Amazon will donate a percentage of your eligible purchases to our council.
Facebook Fundraising—Celebrate your birthday, wedding day, or just any special day by starting a fundraiser on Facebook to benefit GSNorCal. Simply go to your Facebook page, click on "Create" and choose "Fundraiser." You get to thank your donors in real time, and GSNorCal benefits from your generosity and the generosity of your network.
Gift In Kind—If you would like to make a donation of an item(s), please contact us directly. If you’ve already made a donation directly to a troop or service unit, please complete a donation form.
Matching Gifts—See if your company matches gifts!
Dollars for Doers—Many companies encourage their employees to volunteer in the communities where they live and work and in turn the employer will offer matching dollars for the hours. Inquire with your Human Resources department about your program.
For any other donation inquiries—Contact Samantha Seals-Martin at firstname.lastname@example.org or (510) 562-8470, ext. 1510.
