In Honor of Marie Lamfrom

Marie Lamfrom served in World War I as a nurse, working on the Russian front at the age of 18. At the end of the war, she returned home to Germany and married Paul, then had three daughters. As the Nazis rose to power, Marie and her family fled to Portland, Oregon. They purchased a small hat company, which later grew to become Columbia Sportswear.

Give Like a Girl Scout
Give Like a Girl Scout

Every year, Girl Scouts throughout Oregon and SW Washington invest in our communities to make the world a better place. It’s time we invest in them too!  

Join us to lift up the next generation of women and help them find their own pathways to success. Then, watch girls learn, grow, discover—and soar to new heights—with the pride of knowing you helped make it possible.

Join the Give Like a Girl Scout campaign and help us raise funds that change the world.

What: The goal of the Give Like a Girl Scout campaign is to raise $125,000 for our council. We’re looking for 150 people to be champions for girls and help us reach our goal.

How: There are three ways to participate:

  1. Give. Yes, it’s that simple. Your donation, at any level, supports girls in gaining the tools they need to meet today’s problems with bold solutions and create a better, brighter tomorrow.

  2. Become a Champion: Create a fundraising page, share your story, and encourage others to give. Check out our toolkit for instructions to set up your page and sample templates for making your asks, including sample emails, and social media tools. Then just share your page via social media and email. A suggested timeline is provided in the toolkit to take advantage of special dates like Giving Tuesday, your birthday, and upcoming holidays.

  3. Become a Champion: Host a house party. Your party can be a lunch, brunch, book party, or even a hike—whatever works best for you! We suggest setting your fundraising goal for house parties no lower than $500, especially if you are providing snacks. Our toolkit has all the information and resources you need to get started and host a successful party.

Know someone that would make a great champion? Please let us know.

When: The campaign will run from November through February, allowing maximum flexibility for you to fit this into your schedule AND take advantage of unique dates and events that will help you reach your fundraising goal.

Next Steps: This is a team effort! We need as many adults to participate in this campaign as possible to reach our goals for girls. Plus, the more we share our collective voice around the giving season, the more top of mind we’ll be for those interested in making a difference before the end of the year. Staff, volunteers, board members, and even alumnae will have fundraising pages.

Celebrate: Anyone raising $500 or $1,000 will receive a special Girl Scout SWAG item to celebrate our commitment to girls.
