At Girl Scouts, youth develop new skills, talents and friendships through troop activities, participation in camps and more! In order to remove financial barriers that may interfere, we offer limited funds to help members who would be unable to join in Girl Scout activities without financial support.
How does this work? Girl Scouts of Black Diamond Council offers financial support, including support for those in foster and kinship care. In addition to membership registration fees, financial support covers uniforms and program participation, as well as general support funds for troops.

Girl Scouts is for girls of all abilities. Inclusion is a top priority at Girl Scouts. Our staff is committed to serving as resources and guides to ensure the participation of girls with disabilities. This is done by providing adaptive resources for girls and volunteers with disabilities, including American Sign Language interpreters and Braille translation; training and education on inclusion and disability awareness; and inclusion resources. For accommodation requests, please reach out to Customer Care so we can help address any accommodation needs.
Resources for Engaging Girls with Disabilities:
Girl Scouts is committed to bringing our leadership program to girls, from every zip code--regardless of their economic status. Girl Scout troops are funded by a combination of money earned through Council-sponsored entrepreneurial programs, group money-earning activities, and dues. Financial assistance is available so that all girls can participate in Girl Scout activities whenever financial considerations might otherwise hinder their participation. Our amazing girl entrepreneurship programs as well as direct donations help make it possible for all girls to participate fully in Girl Scouts! Your contribution can help ensure that we can continue our mission.
Resources for Troop Leaders and Volunteers:
Check out these resources emphasizing the need for racial equity and justice and follow the Eventbrite page for upcoming Black Girls Matter events. Black Girls Matter: Girl Scouts for Black Lives features Girl Scouts from Greater Los Angeles in conversation about Girl Scouts for Black Lives’ origin story, the role of peaceful protest, and how youth can be change-makers in the world. Black Girls Matter: Changing History, features Girl Scout Cadettes from Hornets’ Nest, who earned their Bronze Award by honoring civil rights leader Dorothy Counts-Scoggins. Mrs. Counts-Scoggins even joined the program and answered attendees’ questions alongside the Girl Scouts!
Girl Scouts cannot be stereotyped. They include girls from many walks of life, such as girls who are from diverse racial, ethnic, and religious groups; who have different family arrangements, and who come from urban, suburban, and rural areas.
Girl Scouts of the USA and its local councils and troops value diversity and inclusiveness and do not discriminate or recruit on the basis of race, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, national origin, or physical or developmental disability.
The values found in the Girl Scout Promise and Law provide an essential framework for developing character, making sound decisions, and fostering strength of conviction. By working together with their troops/groups and with their adult leaders, girls gain greater insights in coping with moral and social dilemmas.
