Forever Girl Scouts Annual Campaign
The Forever Girl Scouts Annual Campaign provides an opportunity for families and friends of GSLE to make an investment directly benefiting our girls. As a member of our GSLE family, you know how important Girl Scouting is to girls, their families, and their communities. We believe girls need a safe place where they can just be girls — having fun, making friends, and serving their communities.
Help support our efforts by making a gift today. Gifts can also be made online. If you wish to designate your gift to a specific troop or service unit, please indicate the information in the comment box section of the donation form. For more information, contact Nancy Kritikos at (504) 355-5886.
GSLE’s Promise Circle recognizes donors to the Council who contribute $1,000 or greater each year. Promise Circle donors are the Council’s most generous benefactors; individuals who invest annually in the Girl Scout Experience for all girls who seek it.
1912 Club: Make an Ongoing Impact
The 1912 Club is a group of dedicated donors providing ongoing
support for Girl Scouts year-round by making recurring monthly to
GSLE. By becoming a member of the 1912 Club, you are committing to
partner with Girl Scouts Louisiana East financially and advocate for
our girls council-wide and in your local community. Your ongoing
contribution affords girls an opportunity to experience Girl Scouts
who may not otherwise be able to participate due to financial
barriers. Whether small or large, recurring gifts allow you
to simplify and streamline your giving spreading out the cost over
time. 1912 Club members receive:
- Recognition as a member of the 1912 Club in GSLE’s Annual Report
- Special communications with Council updates, invitations, and activities
- Monthly donors of $19.12 and above will receive a 1912 Club magnet

Funds raised through special events like our annual Women of Distinction and Juliette Low Leadership Luncheons allow us to reach more girls – inner city to rural, from kindergarten to 12th grade. We’re not stopping until every girl is prepared to empower herself for a lifetime of leadership, adventure, and success. We need partners like you – who recognize that if we want stronger leaders, we need more GIRL SCOUTS.
Girl Scout Network
Girl Scouts Louisiana East invites you to join Girl Scout Network: a powerful community of adults—Girl Scout alums and supporters from across the country—who believe in preparing girls to be the leaders of the future.
Girl Scouts Louisiana East is fortunate to have generous community partners who support our mission of building girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. Their generosity allows Girl Scouts Louisiana East to provide impactful programs and initiatives that give girls leadership and other valuable life skills.
A Tribute gift is a lasting way to honor the people who have touched your life. Tributes are contributions made to the council in honor of a birthday, an anniversary, Bronze, Silver or Gold Award, or other special occasion. Memorials are contributions made to remember a loved one. The council will send acknowledgements to both the donor and the individual or surviving relative for whom the tribute or memorial was made, although the letter to the person honored or relatives will not name the amount of the gift. Honor someone you love by making a Tribute or Memorial gift today.
Juliette Gordon Low Society
The Juliette Gordon Low Society is GSLE's planned giving recognition society. The council’s Planned Giving Campaign is an ongoing campaign that secures gifts of securities, real estate, life insurance, and estate planning contributions from individuals. These gifts are used to ensure that the Girl Scout program will continue in future years to be a vital force in the lives of the girls in southeast Louisiana.

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions made by their employees. If your company matches gifts, your gift may double or triple at no cost to you.
Gifts of Stock
Gifts of stock to GSLE are welcomed and greatly appreciated. While directly supporting the mission and work of the Council, gifts of stock can also have attractive tax benefits to donors, even more so than gifts of cash. For more information, please contact your investment advisor or the GSLE Office of Fund Development at 504-355-5885.
