 Opportunities to Invest

With girls facing ever-increasing challenges, Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia is developing ever-increasing opportunities to support the needs and address the challenges girls are facing. Find the opportunities that appeal to you in supporting the nearly 20,000 Girl Scouts in Historic Georgia!

INVESTING IN GIRL SCOUTS OF HISTORIC GEORGIA
 

               •  General Operating Expenses
                   (annual giving campaign)
                   Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia will make sure that your donation is effectively invested
                   to change the lives of our girls.
 
               •  Friends of Girl Scouting
                   The Friends of Girl Scouting annual campaign is an organized, council-wide fundraising
                   campaign, carried out by adult volunteers to obtain financial support for a wide variety
                   of programs provided locally for Girl Scouts.
 
               •  Outreach Program Support

                   Outreach projects ensure that Girl Scouting is available to every girl, everywhere. Read 
                   more about the council’s outreach initiatives.
 
               •  Give in Honor or Memory of Someone Special

                   Recognize that special someone that has made an impact on your life. Upon receipt
                   of a tribute gift, a thanks card will be sent to the honoree (or in the case of a memorial,
                   the honoree’s family), informing them that a gift has been received in their
                   honor/memory.
 
               •  Company Match

                   Many employers will match charitable contributions through the company toward
                   employee designated contributions. Contact your Human Resources or Community 
                   Relations office and ask them if they have a matching gifts program.
 
               •  Juliette Gordon Low Society

                   The Juliette Gordon Low (JGL) Society is a prestigious group of supports.  Benefits of 
                   membership include a special Juliette Gordon Low Society Charter pin (for first year
                   donation) and lunch at one of our  Woman of Distinction Events.  Recognition includes
                   acknowledgement in the Annual Report, and a listing on the council website.  To become a
                   member of the Juliette Gordon Low Society, you must make a donation of $1,000 or 
                   more during one calendar year.  Benefits apply to all donors for each year in which they 
                   contribute financially to Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia. 
 
               •  Daisy Society

                   When a donation of $25.00 or more is made in honor of a girl to the Annual Giving
                   Campaign, the girl will receive a segment of the Daisy Society patch.  (One piece of the
                   patch can be received each calendar year.)  Donation may be made on the girl’s
                   registration form or at anytime during the calendar year. (Donations made other than at
                   the time of registration will need to have a note accompanying them.  The note needs to 
                   include the name of the girl the gift is honoring and the girl’s troop number.)


SCHOLARSHIPS & ENDOWMENTS

                •  Send a Girl to Camp
                    Though the council works diligently to keep costs at a minimum, not all girls can afford                     to attend camp. Consider making a contribution that will send one or more girls to Girl
                    Scout summer camp.

                •  Founders’ Scholarship Fund
                    The Founders’ Scholarship Fund is an endowment set up to support college scholarships.
                    Each year the council awards $1,000 scholarships to ten deserving girls. We are currently
                    building this endowment so that girls will continue to benefit for generations to come.
 
SPECIAL EVENTS

                •  Women of Distinction Events
                    Our Women of Distinction events celebrate women who have distinguished themselves
                    as outstanding members of their community through individual excellence and high
                    levels of achievement.

LEAVING A LEGACY

                •  Remembering Girl Scouts in Your Will 
                    Remember Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia in your will, charitable trust, a gift of life
                    insurance or other methods in your estate planning. Your support will ensure that Girl 
                    Scouting remains available to Historic Georgia girls for generations to come.

COUNCIL WISH LIST

                 •  Council Wish List
