Invest in Girls. Change the World.
Over 100 years ago, Juliette Gordon Low had a dream that every girl should have the opportunity to discover her leadership role in her community. To do this, she sold her family pearls to finance Girl Scouting to continue to offer programs for girls. In 2022, hundreds of people, companies, and foundations donated to support Girl Scouting. Our 2022 Report to the Community recognizes these donors and shares updates on what Girl Scouts accomplished with their support.
Continuing this tradition, Girl Scouts of Northeastern New York is committed to encouraging over 5,000 girls in our 15-county geography to discover, connect, and take action to become our next community leaders.
Whatever your level of giving, you are investing in girls in our council. Your gift is processed through our secure online donation.
Make a monthly gift by credit card. Simply fill in the Recurring Pledge information on our secure online site. We accept VISA, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, and ACH payments made through your bank account.
Contact us for information on how to easily donate gifts of stock to support Girl Scouting. We suggest you speak with your financial advisor on how donating appreciated stock may help you avoid capital gains tax.
If you work for a company that participates in a United Way campaign, a state employer that participates in a SEFA campaign, or a federal employer that participates in a CFC campaign, you can designate a portion of your support to GSNENY. You can find GSNENY’s under SEFA Charity Code #00155 and CFC #79569. If GSNENY is not included as an option and you can still designate a gift to us, please list our Albany Service Center address 8 Mountain View Ave, Albany, NY 12205, and Nikki Hilchey as the contact.
For information on including GSNENY in your estate planning, please contact Nikki Hilchey at 518-563-1560 x 307 or by email.
Donors who have included GSNENY in their estate plans become members of the Juliette Gordon Low Society. If you have already made arrangements, you can share details by completing our Juliette Gordon Low Society form.
Please make your check payable to GSNENY and mail to Girl Scouts of Northeastern New York, 8 Mountain View Ave, Albany, NY 12205. You can also make your gift by credit card by calling Chancey Young, Philanthropy Specialist, at 518-489-8110 x137.
