Why Support Girl Scouts
We believe that when girls succeed, so do our communities. Whether they’re coding a website, planting a rain garden, or running a literacy program, Girl Scouts are unleashing their inner G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ to build a better world for all of us, every day.
When you contribute to Girl Scouts of Northern California—no matter the amount—you make an immediate difference in the lives of girls. Every dollar you give stays right here in our communities, bringing Girl Scouting to more than 38,000 girls.
The Annual Fund provides essential support for all that we do to serve 38,000 girl members and nearly 30,000 adult members, to help every girl lead, gain skills, and thrive! Your unrestricted support allows the council to apply these resources where the need is greatest.
Each year, GSNorCal serves over 10,000 girl members who live in low-income communities. Your gift of any amount to the Opportunity Fund will ensure these girls have equitable access to Girl Scouts, and the incredible sisterhood, supportive adults, and special experiences that foster belonging and connection that are the core of our world-renowned leadership program.
- Just $50 could provide financial aid for girls and troops recovering from local disasters, such as loss of jobs due to COVID-19, access to collective, holistic experiences including badges, field trips, camping, and uniforms.
- Gifts of $250 or more could help increase access to camp through our Path to Camp focus; support the councils’ work on launching Troop pilots in our most challenging communities in East San Jose and Antioch; or support our work around nurturing diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging for all girls by providing them a safe space to have tough discussions about racism and other issues facing our world.
Girls need our leadership program today more than at any other time in history, and you can be a vital part of giving more girls this opportunity.
Camp Investment Campaign
Camp is a place where all girls have the opportunity to unplug, learn new skills, discover their sense of self, and test new-found independence in a safe, girl-led environment. Our properties are currently closed due to the shelter in place order but we are still maintaining them so they are ready to go when girls and families are able to use them again.
When you invest in camps, you ensure all of our properties are well taken care of year after year. We are committed to getting girls outdoors in fun and challenging ways, even if we have to do it virtually in the meantime!
