Support the Girl Scout mission

Girl Scouts of Oregon and Southwest Washington depends on the generosity of others to achieve our mission of building girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.

Donate once, over a lifetime or make a legacy gift. One in three Girl Scouts in our council depend on financial assistance, so your gift directly impacts the lives of girls in your community.

All contributions are tax deductible under section 501(c)(3) of the IRS code. We respect our donors' privacy. Your information will be used solely by Girl Scouts of Oregon and Southwest Washington.

Trefoil Family Partnership

In order to provide a positive experience for all girls in our council, we count on our member families to support one another locally through Family Partnership. Any amount your family can contribute makes a difference.

Here’s how your gift benefits all girls, including yours:

  • $15 per girl could support ongoing volunteer education and screening
  • $25 could pay for program materials that guide a girl toward earning the Gold or Silver Award
  • $50 could support each girl who participates in volunteer-led Girl Scout experience
  • $365 could sponsor a girl’s financial aid to attend resident camp
There are many ways you can help:
  • Include your gift with your membership registration. Personify allows you to make a secure gift when you complete your membership registration form.
  • Give a troop gift! Girls can choose to designate a portion of their troop treasury as a donation.
  • Contribute through any of the ways listed above under "ways to support Girl Scouts."

GSOSW offers fun incentives for troops and service units who participate in the Family Partnership Campaign, including credit to Girl Scout properties and shops, local craft stores or even a troop pizza party! Contact your service unit fund development coordinator for more information on how to participate.
