Ways to Give | Girl Scouts
Each year, Girl Scouts of Central Illinois provides over $70,000 in membership assistance to local girls to cover the $25 membership dues required by GSUSA to become registered members of Girl Scouts.  Your support makes it possible for us to cover this fee for financially disadvantaged girls who want to join the time-honored tradition of Girl Scouting. For every $25 you donate, you are giving the gift of Girl Scouting to a local girl. Please make a donation today  so that we never have to turn a girl away from Girl Scouting. 
Girl Scouts of Central Illinois believes that every girl should have the opportunity to attend summer camp, and we proudly offer campership assistance so that every girl may experience the unique joy and excitement that Girl Scout summer camp provides. During the summer months, hundreds of girls will have the opportunity to ride a horse, learn archery, climb a rock wall, visit a museum, or go hiking thanks to our Campership Assistance Fund. We provide $30,000 in campership assistance each summer. Help us continue our Campership Assistance Fund by making a donation today
Your gift to Promise Partnership is an investment in the lives of girls—giving them a space to lead, thrive, and make the world a better place. Because when girls are given opportunities to grow and develop their potential, they change the world. You are investing in the leaders of tomorrow. Make a donation today  to invest in the future of girls.
