This is the part where we begin to change the world, one girl at a time.
Girl Scouts has always been a pioneer in developing leadership skills in girls, and with the incredible support of our partners in the community, we have turned that leadership into action.
The proof is in the pudding: nearly every female astronaut who has flown in space was a Girl Scout. 2/3 of our national elected leaders were Girl Scouts. 80% of women who own their own business were Girl Scouts.
Those are pretty incredible results.
When you support Girl Scouts of Citrus, you become part of this leadership legacy. We help girls learn to be safe, think for themselves, and lead the way for others in really big ways.
But we couldn't do that without you. Donate now.
GIFTs FOR GIRLS
Every dollar donated to the GIFTs for Girls Annual Family Campaign will be used to sponsor the costs for a girl who needs financial support.
Each year, Girl Scouts of Citrus receives requests from girls to help them pay their costs to continue their Girl Scouting experience. Annually, requests for financial assistance can equal up to $75,000.
Through participation in this campaign, we offer every Girl Scout family the chance to be a champion to another girl who is less fortunate.

Girl Scouting is about visionary leadership.
Planned Giving is about making that vision last.
When you make a planned gift to Girl Scouts of Citrus, you bestow the Girl Scouts Leadership Experience to future generations of girls.
Not only will your gift make a difference in the lives of our country's future leaders, but the best gift plans improve your financial and tax situation – often right away.
We invite you to explore the opportunities that combine your philanthropic giving with your financial needs and tax-planning strategies. Through creative gift planning you can secure your own financial future as well as ours.
Gifts of all sizes are important and welcomed by Girl Scouts of Citrus. Disclosure of gift amount is not required. To design a gift that benefits the people and organizations you care about most, we recommend that you obtain the professional counsel of an attorney who specializes in estate planning. We can work with your advisors to help you plan for tomorrow and receive maximum benefits today.
JULIETTE GORDON LOW SOCIETY
In March of 1912, Juliette Gordon Low gathered just a few girls to begin the Girl Scouts. Juliette's outstanding leadership was matched by her stewardship when she converted the carriage house of her home into the first Girl Scout national headquarters, and she gifted the property to Girl Scouts in her will.
Juliette's bequest was the beginning of planned giving to Girl Scouts. In her memory, the Juliette Gordon Low Society was established to thank and honor friends of Girl Scouting who choose to make Girl Scouts part of their legacies and a beneficiary of their estate plans.
As a JGL Society member, you will be invited to attend special recognition and educational events. Other benefits include a subscription to the Society newsletter, listing as a Society member in select Girl Scout publications, access to digital resources and a special membership lapel pin.
