Tribute Fund


Friendship treeThe Girl Scouts of Nassau County’s “Tribute Fund” is the perfect way to show someone what you are thinking of them. For a donation of $10.00, you can send a tribute card to that special person in your life to tell them how much you appreciate them; to an individual as a form of congratulations on special occasion; or in sympathy for the loss of a loved one. For donations of $25.00 or more, your tribute will also appear below and in one issue of GirlFriends. Click here for a copy of the Tribute Donation form.

Thank you those who have made recent donations!
