Why Donate?

That's easy. So every girl can have the opportunity to be a Girl Scout!

Imagine a world where every woman was a Girl Scout and every girl who wanted to be, could be a Girl Scout -- a world where people were concerned about their communities and improving the quality of life for themselves and those around them. Girl Scouts care. Our goal is to offer every girl the "Girl Scout Experience!" Girl Scouting can help the girls of today become the women leaders of tomorrow. Whether in business, sports, government, science, education, the arts, parenting, or volunteer work, Girl Scouts have launched successful women in every walk of life. From computers to camping, from sports to self-esteem, mixed with fun and friendships, Girl Scouting has it all!

An investment in Girl Scouts is broader than a cause or a cure.
It's a commitment to a generation.

More than half of America's girls hope to have an effect on the world beyond the communities where they live. That's where you come in. Our donors and volunteers are changing the world by supporting the young women who will change it. As someone who understands that our future depencs on our investment in youth, we are counting on your help.

See what your gift can do:

$50 will provide CPR & First Aid Training Certification for a teen Girl Scout to learn life-saving skills that will last her a lifetime.

$150 will provide a financial literacy program for 15 girls to help them learn how to save for their future.

$200 will provide a camp scholarship for a girl to experience an outdoor adventure she will never forget.

$260 provides a girl one full year of Girl Scouts -- where she can discover who she can be and what she can do, wherever she chooses to put her energies.

Today's Girl Scouts are the children of a new century.
With your help, it will be their century.
What would you give to help change the world?
Help us start in Southwest Texas, one girl at a time.

 

 

Together, we can get her there.

The Girl Scout program has a significant impact on the lives of young girls and their communities here in southwest Texas.  Your gift can make a big difference:

Thanks for your Support!

We can never say it enough... THANKS for contributing to building girls of courage, confidence and character who help to make the world a better place.
