Annual Family Giving Campaign

The Annual Family Giving Campaign is an opportunity for families and friends of Girl Scouts to make a financial contribution to directly benefit the girls. As a member of our Girl Scout family, you know how important Girl Scouting is to girls, their families, and the community. Girls need a place where they can just be girls — having fun, making friends, and feeling safe. Girl Scouting provides girls with the skills to face daily challenges and make sound decisions that affect them today and in the future. Help support Girl Scouting by sending back your gift using our Annual Family Giving Pledge Card.  Gifts can also be made online. 

Your question not found in the Frequently Asked Questions flyer?  Contact Nancy Kritikos at (504) 733-8220, ext. 2236.

Special Events

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.

Tribute Gifts

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.

Planned Giving Campaign

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.
