Financial Assistance

Girl Scouting is for every girl, everywhere. GSNETX’s financial assistance opportunities strive to ensure the fullest Girl Scouting experience possible for every member.

GSUSA Membership Dues

To obtain financial assistance for GSUSA Membership Dues for a girl, please send a completed Girl Membership Financial Assistance Request Form along with her GSUSA membership registration to her Girl Scout Troop Leader or Service Unit Registrar.

Financial assistance for GSUSA Membership Dues for adult Girl Scout Troop Leaders, GS Troop Assistant Leaders, GS Troop Cookie Managers or other adults is available only when the adult is needed to fulfill Safety-Wise requirements. Each individual adult requesting financial assistance should complete a Financial Assistance Request Form, check the Membership Dues- ADULTS ONLY category, and attach it to his or her completed Adult Membership Registration Form. These forms should be submitted with a separate Dues Summary Form. All requests will be reviewed by the Financial Assistance Committee. Adults will be notified of the committee’s decision and information will then be sent to Business Services for processing into the membership database.

Other Assistance

Financial assistance is available for every girl to be able to participate in Girl Scouting in every way. Each Girl Scout is able to be considered for one (1) experience of a type per year (e.g., one (1) resident camp session).
