Family Giving

family_giving_header

The Annual Family Giving Campaign is an opportunity for families and friends of Girl Scouts to make a financial contribution directly benefiting our girls. As a member of our Girl Scout family, you know how important Girl Scouting is to our girls, their families, and the community.

3,222 Girls Received Financial Aid during the 2018-19 Membership Year. Together we can help more girls experience Girl Scouts!

While many think that the annual membership fee and the profits from our Cookie Program cover the cost for each girl; unfortunately, this is not true. Membership fees go directly to Girl Scouts of the USA for program development, and cookie revenue only covers part of Girl Scouts of North-Central Alabama’s budget.

This means that we need to help supply the remaining costs to provide the full Girl Scout Leadership Experience for each girl, and we count on members like you to help us.

Your gift to the Annual Family Giving campaign provides the funding needed for the many programs from which every girl benefits, such as:

  • Training, support, and resources for your girl’s troop leaders

  • Maintenance for camp and program facilities that provide a safe environment for learning and growing

  • Financial assistance for girls who might otherwise not be able to participate in Girl Scouts

  • Council programs for girls of all ages where they can discover new ideas and activities, connect with others, and take action to make the world a better place
