Please remember: “Girl Scout members (girls and adults), in their role as Girl Scouts, may not raise or solicit money for other organizations. However, girls may support other organizations through service projects or they may contribute a portion of their troop/group treasury to organizations or projects they consider worthwhile. Decisions regarding the disbursement of troop/group monies as a contribution to another organization outside of Girl Scouts must be made with the consent of all troop/group members.”
Make up Your Own!
There are many ways to assist your community and you can offer your services to your school, church, museum, or any other organization.
Consider doing a service project for an organization in exchange for waiving of admission for troop – i.e. clean parking lot in exchange for admission to state park.
