Make an Impact

Invest in girls. Change the world.

When girls are given the opportunity, they can change the world!
From traveling abroad to running their own business to giving time
to community service projects, girls explore new opportunities and discover new passions through Girl Scouts. Girl Scouts become tomorrow's leaders.

Annual Contribution: It costs the council $255 each year to support a Girl Scout by providing programs, leadership training, financial assistance, and more. Your gift will ensure a girl gets the chance to grow through Girl Scouts.

Your support will go to the area of greatest need or you can designate your gift to financial assistance, camperships, scholarships, outreach programs, healthy relationships, financial literacy, technology & innovation, health & fitness, or outdoor education. 


Ways To Give


Make a memorial or honorary gift

Memorial and honorary gifts can be made in honor of a loved one or to note a special occasion (anniversary, birthday, etc.). Memorial and honorary gifts are fully tax deductible and the designated person or family member will receive a letter announcing your gift in their honor/memory.

You can donate online, by phone at 1-844-GSNI-4-ME (1-844-476-4463), or by mail. Checks made out to Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois can be mailed to:

2820 McFarland Road, Rockford, IL 61107

Please include the full name(s) and address of the person/family you wish to receive a notification letter.


Corporate matching gifts

Make your gifts go twice as far! Your generous financial support of GSNI helps us deliver leadership programs, equip troop leaders to provide the best experience for girls, and inspire girls in your neighborhood to make the world a better place. What if your donation could do even more? If your employer offers a matching gift to your donation, your contribution could double to help even more girls make wise choices through Girl Scouts.

Some employers will match your financial donation to a non-profit, while others will provide funds for the hours you spend volunteering. Is your employer one of them? Ask your company, or view our list.


Legacy Giving and Juliette Low Society  

Girl Scouting is about visionary leadership.
Legacy giving is about making that vision last.

When you make a legacy gift to GSNI, you bestow the Girl Scouts Leadership Experience to future generations of girls.

Not only will your gift make a difference in the lives of our country's future leaders, but the best gift plans improve your financial and tax situation—often right away.

We invite you to explore the opportunities that combine your philanthropic giving with your financial needs and tax-planning strategies. Through creative gift planning, you can secure your own financial future, as well as ours.

Gifts of all sizes are important and welcomed by GSNI.  Disclosure of gift amount is not required. To design a gift that benefits the people and organizations you care about most, we recommend you obtain the professional counsel of an attorney who specializes in estate planning. We can work with your advisors to help you plan for tomorrow and receive maximum benefits today.

The Juliette Gordon Low Society was established to thank and honor friends of Girl Scouting who choose to make Girl Scouts part of their legacies and a beneficiary of their estate plans.

As a JGL Society member, you will be invited to attend a special member's event during the year and will be listed as a Society member in select Girl Scout publications. You will also receive a special membership lapel pin and commemorative crystal bowl.
