One person can make a Girl Scout’s wish come true. You are that person.

Girls throughout Connecticut are depending upon us — you and me — to make their Girl Scout experience educational, rewarding, and fun!

Donations to our Annual Fund support our programs and operations, including financial assistance for membership fees and uniforms, child safety, program development, adult training, camp maintenance, and financial assistance for camperships.

Family Partnership

Through the Family Partnership program, families are encouraged to give – not only to support their girl’s experience, but to also teach their girls the power of philanthropy.

Campership Fund

The Campership Fund provides financial aid for girls who may not otherwise afford to attend day or resident summer camp. Give a girl a summer to remember, where she will learn new skills, make new friends, and become more confident!

Workplace Giving

GSOFCT participates in many United Way and employer giving campaigns. If your employer isn’t a participant yet, just give us a call and we will make the arrangements for you.

Volunteer Recognition Gifts

Some employers offer to make donations on behalf of their staff that volunteer in the community. See if your employer is one of them!

Honorariums and Memorials

Celebrate a life, a birthday, a friendship or any memorable occasion by making a donation in the name of a loved one. It is a great way to show your appreciation of someone special.

Planned Giving - Juliette Gordon Low Society

When Juliette Gordon Low, founder of Girl Scouts, converted the carriage house of her home into the first national headquarters, she gifted the property to Girl Scouts in her will.

Juliette’s bequest was the beginning of planned giving. In her honor, the Juliette Gordon Low Society was established to thank and honor friends who choose to make Girl Scouts part of their legacies and a beneficiary of their estate plans.

For more information about becoming a member of the Juliette Gordon Low Society, click here or contact Rosemary Padin at (800) 922-2770 ext. 3234.
