Financial Assistance

We offer limited financial scholarships for families whose personal circumstances may be an obstacle to overcome so that their daughter can fully engage in Girl Scout events, activities or opportunities. Please contact the financial assistance committee at financialassistance@girlscoutsgcnwi.org or 630-544-5990 to inquire about the availability of this fund. Requests for financial assistance for the 2014-2015 membership year will be accepted after September 1, 2014.
