Financial Aid

We are committed to ensuring all girls have the opportunity to participate in Girl Scouts. We make funds available to support girl members or girls seeking membership to Girl Scouts of Northern California by providing supplemental resources beyond a family’s ability to pay. 

Financial aid is intended to be a supplement to troop-earned funds—troops are encouraged to facilitate girl-led financial planning for their activities. Financial aid funds are supported by the Opportunity Fund, Girl Scout Cookie Program, and Fall Product Program.

We offer no-questions-asked financial aid to cover the following expenses:
 

  • Girl Annual Membership Registration: Membership dues are $40/year for girls and $25/year for adults. Girls can request financial aid as they complete their online membership registration.
  • Girl Uniforms: Girls can request uniform aid, which includes a voucher to our retail shops to purchase a Sash (or Tunic for grades K–1), Girl Scout Membership Pin, and Council ID patch set or Troop Numbers. Apply for uniform aid with the Financial Aid Form (PDF).
  • Council Programs and Events: The cost of registration for any of our council-run programs and events listed on our events page. Apply for Program and Event aid with the Financial Aid Form (PDF).
  • Adult Annual Membership Registration & Background Checks: Adults can request financial aid for their annual membership due and/or their background checkes by filling out the online adult membership financial aid request form.

We're here to help! Email us at info@gsnorcal.org or call 800-447-4475, ext. 2093 Monday–Friday, 9 AM–5 PM.

All deadlines are subject to change and financial aid allocations are subject to availability within Girl Scouts of Northern California's current operating budget.
