Girl Scout dues increasing for 2017-2018 Membership Year


Macedonia, OH- Girl Scouts is the first and largest girl-led organization in the world, and for more than a century has been preparing girls in grades K-12 for every day leadership by providing rich experiences for them to explore new interests, face challenges, form new friendships, and make lasting community contributions.

Now in our second century, as we continue the Girl Scout mission, it is important that we keep pace with an ever-changing world.  To ensure we have the resources to support our mission, Girl Scouts of the USA’s National Board has decided to increase the annual membership dues to $25, starting October 1, 2017, for both girl and adult members.

Every dollar of membership dues is sent to Girl Scouts of the USA to cover the cost of fundamental services supporting the Girl Scout Movement.  This includes, but is not limited to, accident insurance for members participating in approved Girl Scout activities, program development, research, resources, training, technology, services to councils, and protection of the Girl Scout brand.  Membership dues also help fund the implementation of new technologies to improve the Girl Scout experience for girls, volunteers, and parents.
