Invest in Girls!

At Girl Scouts, we believe that when girls succeed so does society. We provide girls with a place to discover their passions, find their voice and make positive impact in their communities. These girls are building a better world for all of us!

Help us ensure that every girl in the Greater Washington Region develops the confidence that Girl Scouts nurtures. An investment in Girl Scouting is broader than a cause or a cure. It is a commitment to the next generation of self-sufficient and capable women.

Our Council accepts cash, checks, credit cards (online), or gifts of stock. Checks should be made out to Girl Scouts Nation’s Capital. Please fill out this form and send with your donation to Girl Scouts Nation’s Capital, Attention: Development, 4301 Connecticut Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20008

Make a difference today! 100% of every dollar donated stays with our Council to support our local Girl Scouts.
