Girl Scouts of Western Washington welcomes youth and volunteer members in any financial situation. We make funds available to cover membership, events and workshops, troop dues, supplies, and camp.
We accept grant requests for membership dues all year, with the exception of two 24-hour annual shutdowns during the year. We accept all other grant requests (camp, event, troop dues, and supply vouchers) from October 1 through August 30.
1. Review your eligibility. If your family qualifies for free or reduced-price school lunch or if your Girl Scout is a foster child, you qualify for our Financial Assistance Program.
2. Complete your Girl Scout membership online. Upon checkout, indicate financial assistance as your payment method.
3. Apply for financial assistance through our digital or paper application forms. Third-party advocates may apply for financial assistance on behalf of a Girl Scout with their family’s verbal permission.
