Ways To Give –
Support The Sash™ 

We rely on the generosity of our community to help us make Girl Scouting accessible to more girls and expand our impact to all girls in our council.

Whether you are making a one-time annual gift or an automatic monthly deduction, your gift makes a difference in the lives of girls in Arizona.



There are a variety of ways to engage with Girl Scouts–Arizona Cactus-Pine Council in meaningful ways. We have three annual giving circles that provide you opportunities to support our work and learn about Girl Scouting firsthand. Your support helps provide the programming that girls want and need, which is critical to the success of our mission.

Join the Journey  (starts at $5,000)

By contributing to our premier giving circle, your gift will significantly impact the lives of Arizona girls through Girl Scouts. As part of this exclusive group, you’ll receive quarterly updates on the way your gift is helping girls make an impact in their communities. We’ll also provide you with individualized opportunities to learn how our girls are changing the world in addition to receiving access to all of our giving circle events. 

Trefoil Tradition  (starts at $1,000)

The Trefoil Tradition program is a unique giving circle for individuals who support the tradition of Girl Scouting and want to continue to invest in girls in our community. Trefoil Tradition members are invited to attend two exclusive events throughout the year that will touch on pertinent topics facing girls and women in Arizona.

Troop Pearl  ($75)

It is never too late to be a Girl Scout! Troop Pearl allows women who were once Girls Scouts and women who have not had a history with our organization, to engage in the sisterhood of the Girl Scouting. Members will experience the adventure of Girl Scouting through quarterly events that are similar to activities of local Girl Scout troops, but with an adult spin! Troop Pearl members also have a chance to give their time to Girl Scouts if they choose, through unique volunteer opportunities. A portion of your gift goes toward our girl assistance fund, to ensure no girl is denied access to Girl Scouting due to financial need. 

By enrolling in one of these giving circles, you will receive the benefits of the circles(s) that follow.

Whether it is supporting our new facility or supporting the operations of the Council through one of the giving circles above, your gift will make a real difference in the lives of our girls.
