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.

On Saturday, June 10, Girl Scouts took over Nats Park to watch our favorite team take on the Rangers! From a special Girl Scout parade to the presentation of the colors and the "Play Ball" announcement, girls took part in special experiences just for Girl Scouts. Girl Scout Ambassador Samantha L., who was named the 2017 Virginia Scout of the Year by the Veterans of Foreign Wars, had the honor of throwing out the ceremonial first pitch. Thank you to everyone from our Girl Scout family who attended and supported share. You can view photos from the day on our Facebook page.
