Help Give Girls a Brighter Future

Girl Scouts provides experiences for girls who will become tomorrow's business, civic and volunteer leaders.

With your help, Girl Scouts of Orange County is providing a safe environment for more than 22,000 girls to develop their talents and leadership skills and grow up to be strong, healthy and happy women. And we know that Girl Scouts works – a recent study showed that women who were Girl Scouts when they were young have higher perceptions of self, higher rates of volunteerism and civic engagement, higher rates of college education and higher household incomes than non-alumnae.  

Here are some additional ways to help support the Girl Scouts of Orange County:

  • Matching Corporate Gifts
  • In-Kind Donations
  • Car Donations
  • Estate Gifts
  • Stocks and Bonds
  • Ralphs Club Reward Cards
  • Amazon Smile

MATCHING GIFTS
Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions and/or volunteer hours made by their employees that double or even triple the impact of your gift. There are two ways to take advantage of your employer's matching gift program.

Search to see if your company's matching gift program and forms are available online and follow the procedures. Click here to begin your search.

Request a matching gift form from your employer and send it to us completed and signed with your gift. We will do the rest.
