Ways to Give
Donations to Annual Giving gives Girl Scouts of Black Diamond Council (GSBDC) the power to provide extraordinary opportunities to our girls and volunteers. Your gifts ensure that every girl in our council develops the confidence to thrive. An investment in Girl Scouting is greater than a cause or a cure – it is an investment in the next generation of self-sufficient and capable women. YOUR gift makes a difference in the life of a girl.
Through your gift to the annual fund, GSBDC is able to:
- Provide creative program experiences in a safe and nurturing environment.
- Provide leader training to our adult volunteers.
- Maintain and update our council properties and camps.
- Ensure the safety of our girls via adult volunteer background checks.
It takes $400 annually to serve each G.I.R.L in Girl Scouts of Black Diamond. Your gift to Family Partnership provides girls across our council with the opportunity to become a Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, and Leader. Your support gives each girl member with the opportunity to develop skills that will influence the rest of her life. To learn more, check out our Family Partnership brochure.
Pearls for Girls
In order to launch the Girl Scout Movement, Juliette Gordon Low sold her valuable pearl necklace to support her idea of an organization for girls, led by girls. Because of her selfless gift, more than 50 million women are prepared for a lifetime of leadership.
Pearls for Girls is a community dedicated to carrying on Juliette Gordon Low’s legacy of building girls of courage, confidence, and character. Joining Pearls for Girls is easy. Members pledge monthly gifts automatically deducted from a credit or debit card. Whatever the size of the gift, it accumulates to give more girls a place to shine. For more information contact Dedriell Taylor (304) 553-7029 or join now.
Stocks and Securities
Gifts of securities afford donors an attractive means of giving to Girl Scouts of Black Diamond. Donors receive a tax deduction for the market value of the securities, computed on the day of their transfer while avoiding payment of capital gains on the stock's appreciated value. Donors of stock are encouraged to consult their brokers or advisors. More information.
Our relationships with sponsors and program partners run deep. We are grateful for their breadth of support and we recognize our sponsors for making girls a priority. Our sponsors and program partners support projects, programs, events, initiatives, and activities throughout our council and without them, GSBDC would not be able to accomplish all the things we do. Please look at our current sponsorships here.
