Talking to Families About Finances
We want to help every girl participate in Girl Scouts! Caregivers and volunteers may contact Customer Care at 888.747.6945 or firstname.lastname@example.org with questions about financial assistance in four areas.
One of the first questions families ask is “how much does it cost to be a Girl Scout?” Because we are a volunteer-driven organization, and thanks to amazing volunteers like you, our annual membership fees are reasonable. Girl membership is $30 and adult membership is $25.
Financial aid is available for membership fees. Caregivers may request financial aid at the time of membership registration.
Events & Camp
We all learn by doing. Get your Girl Scouts out of their normal routine and challenge their abilities with hands-on, expert-led events, day camps, sleepaway camps, or wilderness trips. Girls can sign up individually or with friends.
Financial aid is available for a variety of council-hosted program events and camps. Caregivers may request financial aid at the time of registration.
Uniforms are a fun and important way for the girls to feel part of something special, just like a sports team or music ensemble uniform. Badges and patches on a Girl Scout uniform demonstrate what girls have learned and experienced in Girl Scouts! Suggested uniform pieces cost approximately $40 per girl.
Financial aid is available for uniforms and includes a Girl Scout sash (tunic for Daisies), American flag patch, and the GSNWGL council ID patch. Troop Leaders submit a form on behalf of families.
Most new troops either ask for donations of basic materials or they collect troop dues to purchase them. Dues in our council typically range from $5-$25 per girl.
Financial aid for troop dues is available to new members only. Troop Leaders submit a form on behalf of families. Moving forward, plan for Fall Product Program and Cookie Program profits to cover future troop expenses of badges, patches, program event fees, and supplies.
