Invest in Girls!

Donationpage

At Girl Scouts, we believe that when girls succeed,  society succeeds. Girl Scouts provide a safe space for girls to try new things, develop a range of skills, take on leadership roles, and have fun. These girls are building a better world for all of us!

You help ensure that we can continue our mission: to build girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place. 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, or gifts of stock. Checks should be made out to Girl Scouts Nation’s Capital. Please 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.
