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.

Companies with matching-gift programs include:

Campership                                                                                        

GSGST's Campership's help provide resources for girls who would not be able to participate in the Girl Scout program otherwise. We encourage troops, groups, and individuals to donate funds to be used to purchase Camperships for girls who might not have the resources to experience camp. Please complete the Campership Donation Form so that your donation may be properly acknowledged.

 

In-kind Donations                                                                              

In-kind donations are donations that are "paid or given in goods, commodities, or services instead of money." This includes donations of actual items, labor, or gift cards -- it does not include donations made by cash or check. The rule of thumb is if you can put it in your bank account it is not an in-kind donation.

Please be sure to complete an In-kind Donation Form so that your gift can be acknowledged appropriately. Remember -- because service units and/or troops are not 501(c)(3) entities in accordance with state and federal laws, they cannot request tax-free gifts nor can they issue receipts for tax-free donations. All cash donations of $250 or more or any donations requiring a tax-exempt receipt that are received by troops or service units should be given to the council  for documentation. When applicable, the council will issue a receipt and acknowledgment letter and ensure proper disbursement of the funds back to the troop or service unit.

For further questions regarding in-kind donations, please contact (956) 425-2388 or (361) 883-3611

 

Memorials & Tributes                                                                           

Birthdays, graduations, holidays...any day can be a special day when you make a donation in honor or memory of a loved one. Not only will your gift have special meaning to you and your honoree, but your gift will impact the lives of thousands of girls across Greater South Texas. Gifts can honor friends, family, troop leaders, companies, co-workers -- anyone who is special to you. We will send a personal note to each person, family, or organization that you honor letting them know of your thoughtfulness.

If you are looking for information to include in an obituary regarding memorial gifts, you can refer to the following language: In lieu of flowers, gifts may be made to Girl Scouts of Greater South Texas in memory of (name). Checks should be made payable to GSGST and mailed to: Girl Scouts of Greater South Texas. Please include a note stating that your gift is in "Memory of (name)."

 

 

Planned Gifts                                                                                       

A planned gift is a donor's commitment to benefit Girl Scouts of Greater South Texas through a gift that takes effect at death or after a term of years. When you include GSGST in your will or other estate plans, you will provide the financial power the organization needs to help future generation of girls receive the best program and the best resources GSGST can provide to help them become their personal best. Planned gifts to GSGST include bequests, life insurance, and retirement plan benefits.

Since the information on this site is not intended as legal, tax, or investment advice, it is highly recommended that prospective donors consult with their own tax or legal advisors prior to making a planned gift.
