Financial Assistance Request
The Girl Scouts of Orange County believes that all girls should have the opportunity to participate in the Girl Scout experience and not be limited by economic factors. The Board of Directors annually approves Financial Assistance to help girls purchase uniforms and participate in troop or activities.

This fund is for:
• The purchase of a Girl Scout uniform components and the required insignia
• Assistance in purchasing handbooks
• Assistance in purchasing supplies
• Assistance with Council-Hosted/Service Unit events, troop activities or field trips (not sleepaway camp)

Requests are processed during six-month periods: January through June and July through December. As a result of this procedure, it is necessary that two separate requests be made for one girl to cover the entire Girl Scouting year.
  • Financial Assistance Requests can be completed by a Troop Leader or parent/guardian.

    • Troop Check – $25 maximum per girl
