Ways to Invest

Invest in building girls of courage, confidence, and character!

We are so excited about your interest in providing opportunities for girls! Feel free to explore all the ways you can invest in girls below. All donations to the Girl Scouts of the Sierra Nevada stay right here in our region to support local Girl Scouts. An investment in Girl Scouts is a commitment to developing young leaders who have the passion and know-how to change the world. When you give girls the means to discover success, you have succeeded.

For more information about any of these programs, our funding priorities or other ways you can support the mission of Girl Scouts, please contact Pam Czyz, Director of Development and Communications, at 775.322.0642 ext. 1270 or pczyz@gssn.org.

Annual Unrestricted Contributions

Each year, we receive contributions from individuals interested in supporting Girl Scouting in our local community. These monetary gifts form the foundation of our fundraising program, and we depend on them to meet our daily obligations. You may also want to consider setting up a recurring gift on a monthly, quarterly, or annual basis.

Major Investments

Our council often seeks funds for special projects and capital improvements. Please consider making a larger investment beyond your regular contribution so that we can continue serving girls well into the future. Contact the GSSN Reno Service Center at 775-322-0642 to hear about our current projects.

Legacies for the Future

Legacies encompass planned giving and planned estate strategies including bequests, trusts and annuities and can involve cash, real estate and business holdings. This type of investment usually requires the assistance of a professional advisor.

Event Sponsorships

Many businesses, organizations, and individuals support Girl Scouting through event sponsorships. We host special events throughout the year, where multi-level sponsorship opportunities are available. This win-win situation allows the donor to invest in Girl Scouts while receiving maximum exposure through event marketing. Please email pczyz@gssn.org for current sponsorship opportunities.

Donor Designated Funds

Donors can designate their investment to specific items or projects including:

  • Volunteer-Led Troops
  • Low-Income Families and Neighborhoods/Financial Assistance program
  • Camps and Outdoor Opportunities
  • Volunteer Training and Support.

Family Giving / Family Partnership

Family Partnership gifts are a special present from you to girls in the community who would benefit from Girl Scouting. Parents and other family members are invited to support the Girl Scout mission locally so that all girls who wish to participate are able to do so.

In need of a unique gift for your family, friends, teachers, coworkers, or employees? TisBest Charity Gift Cards are a wonderful way to help your friends and loved ones support their favorite charities. A charity gift card works like other gift cards, with one meaningful exception: your recipient uses the funds on the card to support one or more of the 250 charities on the TisBest website. Girl Scouts of the Sierra Nevada is one of TisBest’s local charity partners, and we are honored to receive funds through the TisBest Charity Gift Card program when gift card recipients select our organization to support with their gift.
