Workplace & Corporate Giving


For Employees

United Way/Funds 
Employees at certain companies and organizations can donate to charities of their choice, including GSWPA, through their local United Way’s Annual Giving Campaign.

Matching Gifts
Many employers will match the charitable contributions of its employees, retirees and sometimes even spouses, so your gift to GSWPA could go even further. See a list of businesses and corporations that currently participate or check with your HR representative for more information. Is your company not on the list? Contact Fund Development at to find out how your company can participate in matching gifts.

Volunteer Matching Grants
Some employers will “match” employee volunteer hours at GSWPA with a monetary donation. Check with your HR representative to see if your company participates. Need to submit a volunteer matching gift request? Complete this form


For Businesses and Corporations

Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC)
 Your business can significantly reduce its state tax liability while supporting Girl Scouts Western Pennsylvania’s Educational Initiatives. Any business that pays Pennsylvania taxes is qualified and the process is simple. EITC funds enable Girl Scouts to partner with school districts and community groups to offer girls the opportunity to enhance their academic experience, improve scholastic performance and obtain leadership skills.  Learn more!

Program Partnerships and Mentorships
We actively seek partnerships with businesses and corporations, working in tandem to create educational and interactive curriculums in:


Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM)


Health Living


Middle School Series


Rural Scouting


Urban Scouting

 Equally important to program development is the mentoring component. Employees will present program material as experts in their fields and provide real world examples of individuals who have made this material part of their careers. This partnership in action is a way for corporations to open a world of possibilities for girls who might not otherwise get the opportunity to have these programmatic experiences.
