Ways to Give
At Girl Scouts, we know that when given the opportunity, girls change the world, and we have the reach and experience to help girls everywhere lead. But, we can’t do it alone. Today, Invest in Girls. Change the World.
Here’s how you can help:
Through Family Partnership – Help us help G.I.R.L.s
What is the Power of $10? Here at Girl Scouts of Nassau County, YOU have the power to impact how a girl connects with herself and how she connects with the world.
Through Family Partnership, we ask you to imagine the possibilities. Here is what your $10.00 investment can do if….
- Two (2) families donate, one girl can learn to think like a scientist and attend our In the Lab: Chocolate Science program
- Seven (7) families donate, one girl can learn First Aid and receive her Lifesaver: CPR Certification
- Thirty (30) families donate, one girl gets to participate in one full year of the GS Leadership Experience
- Seventy (70) families donate, one girl gets to experience one week at Camp Blue Bay Sleepaway Camp
Today help us reach our goal to enable more girls to participate in Girl Scouting.
Family Partnership giving supports:
Financial Assistance - No girl is ever turned away from Girl Scouts of Nassau County due to her family’s financial limitations. Financial Assistance can include, but is not limited to: membership fees, program participation fees, uniform components, books, badges, supplies and camp fees

When you make a donation of $10 or more your daughter will receive a Family Partnership Participant Patch. And if your donation is $35 or more, she receives another patch for “Going The Extra Mile” and her Troop will receive a 15% rebate credit for use in the GSNC Shop.

For more than 100 years, Girl Scouts have demonstrated resilience, learned the skills, embraced the experiences, and cultivated the sisterhood that helps impact communities today and accomplish big things tomorrow.
In this time of uncertainty, our mission continues... In fact, more than ever, girls need Girl Scouts.
Girls need Girl Scouts: to help them stay connected to their communities during a time of isolation and upended routines; to ensure that while the format of school has changed, they continue to pursue their passions and do not experience learning loss; so they can walk boldly towards sisterhood, justice, and fairness.
Despite the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, we are continuing to prepare girls to take the lead, explore their passions, and make the world a better place for generations to come.
Please help us ensure that in a time of great loss, girls do not miss out on these formative experiences. Your support will keep girls in Girl Scouting and provide access to our programs, regardless of background, geography, or financial situation.
Power of the Trefoil
For more than 100 years, Girl Scouts have demonstrated resilience, learned the skills, embraced the experiences, and cultivated the sisterhood that helps girls impact their communities today and accomplish big things tomorrow.
In this time of uncertainty, our mission continues…
Girl Scouts is building the leaders of the future. We use our resources and expertise to continuously create programs that make a difference in girls’ lives—something we’ve been doing for over a century.
That is why, even in the face of a global pandemic, we cannot stop. We cannot let girls down. Just as we encourage girls to seek challenges and take healthy risks, we are taking stock of our organization’s capacity to adapt and thrive while overcoming obstacles. We are choosing to look at the challenges we face right now as opportunities!
To do this, we need the support of visionary leaders and philanthropists like you to help us provide and develop the programs that are most important to girls today.
Your investment in Girl Scouts is an investment in our community, in our country, and in our future. Together, we can help girls discover their untapped potential and build girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place.
Our five-part video series is Girl Scouts' way of providing information virtually to all our community in lieu of trying to assemble together during a time of Zoom fatigue and social distancing. Each Tuesday morning, you will learn about the power of the Girl Scout experience at all levels of Girl Scouting. We call this series “The Power of the Trefoil.” We hope you enjoy our first video below.
Should you have any further questions, please contact Chief Fund Development Officer Luci Duckson-Bramble at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Send a Girl to Camp
Every summer we provide an unforgettable camp experience for over 1,200 girls—the fun and learning are through the roof! For many of them, the dream of going to camp would be out of reach without assistance. While we budget funds to attempt to ensure that every girl who dreams of going to camp has the opportunity to do so, we are unable to provide camperships to all of the families who need it. That’s where you come in.
This year we have campers anxiously waiting to see if they will be able to receive financial assistance to attend camp and make a lifetime of memories with their forever friends. In order to meet the increasing demand to provide opportunities of camp to as many girls as possible, we turn to you, our friends, and ask for your support.
Costs to send a girl to Girl Scout Camp:
- Residential Camp: $625 for one week
- Day Camp: $350 for one week
Please help us make girls’ camp dreams come true; Donate Now!

The Girl Scouts of Nassau County’s Tribute Fund is the perfect way to let someone know that you are thinking of them.

At the same time you’ll be making a lasting impact on the lives of over 17,000 Girl Scouts in Nassau County. The person that you designate will receive a card announcing your thoughtful gift and your Tribute will appear in an upcoming issue of our newsletter, GirlFriends, which reaches all the Girl Scout families in Nassau County.

Centennial Tribute Garden
In 2019 the Centennial Garden was created to commemorate Girl Scouts of Nassau County’s 100th Anniversary. Since that time, individuals have purchased granite trefoil stones as a legacy to honor and remember those who embody the Girl Scout spirit. The Garden has expanded, and there is space for additional stones. So consider honoring that special person with a granite stone, and a lasting place at GSNC.
The approximate size of each stone Trefoil is 18” x 18” and can accommodate up to 5 lines of text with up to 20 characters per line in 72pt type.
A minimum donation of $1,000 is requested. A group of individuals may collaborate to make this donation.
You can visit our Centennial Tribute Garden along the Cookie Driveway at the GSNC Service Center.

Girl Scouts of Nassau County’s (GSNC) Compassion Fund was created to assist members and their families during emergency situations so that all girls continue to have the Girl Scout Leadership Experience. This fund is part of the GSNC Financial Assistance program and is used by GSNC’s Executive Team in special situations that merit need.
One of our Girl Scouts and her family recently lost their home in a fire. This is a devastating loss for anyone to experience. GSNC wishes to help this girl and her family by replacing her vest so she can continue to proudly display her achievements with Girl Scouts and by providing gift cards to replace clothing and other household essentials as her family re-builds their home.
How can you help?
If you are a troop leader who has purchased badges or patches, consider going through your excess inventory to see if you have any of the ones we may need. The fun patches from service unit events are the hardest to replace.
A badge or patch donation may be sent to the Council Service Center at:
Girl Scouts of Nassau County
Attention: The Compassion Fund
110 Ring Road West
Garden City, NY 11530
Other ways to help:
Don’t have any of the needed patches? Then please consider making a donation that will be used to offset the cost of her vest, additional patches, or gift cards for the family to replace clothing or other household essentials.
All donations should be made by September 15, 2021.
