Power Her Promise

Ways to Give

Your donation is more than a charitable contribution—it’s an investment in society. Now more than ever, we need strong leaders. Your support helps make this possible!

Your generosity powers every Girl Scout's promise to make the world a better place. In a time like no other, Girl Scouts San Diego has used its resources wisely to continue programs that not only build girls' courage, confidence, and character, but importantly, offer space to keep girls connected to one another during times of isolation, anxiety, and fear.


Girl Scouts promise to make the world a better place. Through opportunities to explore unique interests and develop critical leadership skills, 20,000 local girls pursue paths that build their confidence and character, improve their communities, and create a better future for themselves and others.

Girl Scouts San Diego’s dynamic programs are more critical than ever. During this difficult time, we are determined to continue pursuing our important mission. We are using this time to build resiliency, understanding, and courage in the next generation of leaders.

More than 45 percent of Girl Scouts in our community live in households that struggle with economic security. This organization provides a path to a better tomorrow regardless of a family's ability to pay—thanks to donors like you.

Please give generously so all girls have the opportunity to join Girl Scouts, realize their potential, and fulfill their Girl Scout Promise to make the world a better place.

Will your company match your donation? Many do! Please check with your employer; you can double your impact.

Ways to Give Throughout the Year

In return for your support, we will provide careful and thoughtful stewardship of your donation, ongoing communications, and appropriate recognition at our properties and within our publications. We support the Donor Bill of Rights.

On-the-Ground Support
Donate a Vehicle

Be a Driving Force: Donate Your Vehicle!

Make your car the star in a Girl Scout’s leadership journey! Donating your unwanted vehicle—boat, camper, motorcycle, or car—is easier than selling it, and you will receive a tax receipt for your contribution. Our representatives can even arrange to tow inoperable vehicles. Call 855-500-RIDE (855-500-7433), or complete our online form to get started.

Federal CARES Act Charitable Deductions

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act was passed by Congress to provide tax relief to you! Here are some of the takeaways:

  • If you itemize your deductions, you can deduct donations up to 100% of your 2020 Adjusted Gross Income (AGI).
  • If you make contributions to qualified charities, like Girl Scouts San Diego, and you do not itemize your deductions, you qualify for a charitable deduction of up to $300 per taxpayer ($600 for a married couple).
  • As before, if you are over 70 ½ years old, you can direct up to $100,000 from your IRA to Girl Scouts through a qualified distribution (QCD) and avoid taxable income.

For more information, please contact your financial advisor. If you have questions about making a gift to Girl Scouts, please contact Chief Advancement Officer LIz Sheahan, 619-610-0735.
