Ways to Give

Here at Girl Scouts Western Pennsylvania, we want to make investing in girls as easy as it can be. Large or small, every donation makes an impact in the lives of girls and in our communities.

All donations are tax-deductible, and you can designate your contribution toward a specific purpose: for financial assistance for Girl Scouts in need, to send a girl to camp, for camp and facility improvements, or to go to the area with the greatest need.

There are many different ways you can contribute, and giving is easy. Here's how:
