Invest in a Lifetime Membership

Becoming a lifetime member of Girl Scouts is about more than just recognizing the impact the organization had on your life—it’s about realizing the impact you can have on girls today.

Girl Scouts provides girls with programming in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM); the outdoors; entrepreneurship; and life skills—areas essential to preparing them for a lifetime of leadership, success, and adventure. Your investment in lifetime membership ensures that girls always have the support they need to reach their full potential and change the world.

In fact, the moment you sign up as a lifetime member, you’ve already made the difference in the life of a girl. A $25 portion of your lifetime membership dues goes back to your local council to fund a one-year membership for an underserved girl. You know Girl Scouts can be a life-changing experience—and you can give that to a girl who might not otherwise have the opportunity.

Lifetime membership is available to any individual who accepts the principles and beliefs of the Girl Scout Promise and Law, pays the one-time lifetime membership fee, and is at least 18 years old (or a high school graduate or equivalent).

Ordinarily, lifetime membership dues are $400 with a “young alum” price of $200, given to former Girl Scouts under the age of 30. This month, however, that price is opened up to a larger audience.

Because April is National Volunteer Appreciation Month, we want to thank those who have been with us for 10 years or more. As a special promotion this month, these volunteers can purchase the membership for $200. As a note, the 10 years must be volunteer years alone—your years as a Girl Scout do not count toward this promotion. You can upgrade when you go to renew through MyGS or through the Lifetime Membership website.

Other benefits of a lifetime membership include:

  • LIFETIME MEMBERSHIP CARD AND PIN—COMING SPRING 2019
  • 10% OFF GIRL SCOUT MERCHANDISE PURCHASED ONLINE
  • INVITATION TO JOIN AN ANNUAL CALL FOR LIFETIME MEMBERS HOSTED BY GSUSA’S CEO
  • INVITATIONS TO EXCLUSIVE LOCAL AND NATIONAL EVENTS
  • MONTHLY ENEWSLETTER FOR GIRL SCOUT ALUMS
  • OPPORTUNITY TO PURCHASE GIRL SCOUTS OF THE USA’S EXCLUSIVE LIFETIME MEMBERSHIP SCARF IN SUMMER 2019!

Happy Volunteer Appreciation Month!

April is one of our favorite months of the year because it’s a special time to thank the everyday heroes in the lives of our Girl Scouts – our volunteers! While we love and appreciate them (and you!) every day, April is a special time to show our gratitude.

We know that without our volunteers, our girls wouldn’t develop into
G.I.R.L.s (Go-getters, Innovators, Risk-takers, Leaders)™. They help our girls unleash their most confident selves and transform them into a force for good. They take our mission to build girls of courage, confidence, and character to heart and apply it in all they do.

All year long, our volunteers make meaningful and inspiring contributions to our movement and we’re so thankful they choose to dedicate their time to preparing Girl Scouts for a lifetime of leadership. Our program makes a difference, and it’s because of how hard our volunteers work and care.

They say not all heroes wear capes, but ours wear the passion for what they do as a notable indicator that they’re Girl Scout volunteers. And yes, some of ours wear vests and patches!

More than just us thanking you, we know how grateful our members are for our volunteers, which is why we have the option for you to thank volunteers as well!

All month long, show your favorite Girl Scout volunteer how much they mean to you with a straight-from-the-heart, personalized ecard. Choose from four predesigned templates. Just fill in the blank to finish the sentence, and share your ecard with them on Facebook, on Twitter, or by email!

Also during National Volunteer Week (April 7–13) you can head over to FacebookTwitter, and Instagram, to show love for your favorite Girl Scout volunteer by sharing what makes them so special to you. Be sure to mention all the ways you support them throughout the year too. And remember to tag @girlscouts and use #NVW2019 so we can follow the love!

Use code VOLUNTEER19 for 15% off* one item from our online store, the Girl Scout Shop, and bring a smile to a volunteer’s face! Or pick up something new for yourself.
