Invest in Girls

Each year, Girl Scouts Heart of the South's Invest in Girls campaign supports the entire Girl Scout Program across all 59 counties in our council. Funds are used to ensure girls receive the best programming, events and services possible, and that volunteers receive quality training - not only for Girl Scout programs - but also for their professional and personal development.

  • $350 can provide a year of Girl Scout programs for one girl
  • $175 can provide one girl with 1/2 year of Girl Scout programming
  • $100 can provide scholarships to help girls attend Girl Scout events
  • $60 will provide training for a volunteer who wants to work with girls

Your tax deductible donation will ensure that girls from all across our region will be able to grow, learn and become leaders in their community while having fun and making friends.

Helperships

Helperships allow every girl, regardless of financial means, to attend council program, troops and summer camp or benefit from the Girl Scout experience. We believe that Girl Scout provides the best opportunities for girls to learn leadership skills, develop a sense of self and confidence to try new things, overcome fears and discover new passions. Your gift can help provide an outdoor leadership or Girl Scout experience for our girls.

HELPERSHIPS:

  • $35 can give a girl a membership and programming for her to attend
  • $60 will provide training for a volunteer who will change a girl’s life
  • $100 can provide helperships for girls to attend council events
  • $175 can provide a half of a year of programming for one girl
  • $350 can provide an entire year of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience

Or you choose the amount; every dollar you can give will help give the gift of Girl Scouts to more girls today and for years to come!
