With thoughtful planning, a ‘planned gift’ creates a win-win for you and for Girl Scouts of Utah. For example:
- You can make a gift that costs nothing during your lifetime.
- You can give stock and realize larger tax savings.
- You can donate your house, continue to live there, and get a tax break all at the same time.
Also called a legacy gift, planned giving is a charitable bequest in your will which can be revocable or irrevocable, so that you benefit from an immediate income tax deduction. You allocate an asset today, but the actual giving of the asset is put off until after your lifetime, (and that of a surviving beneficiary, if you wish).
To get started, please call or email us and we’d be happy to explore the possibilities with you! Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are more than 300,000 girls in Utah between 5 and 18 years old.
Only 8,440 of these are Girl Scouts.
For many Utah families, Girl Scouting is financially out of reach. You can change this. Give now.
Through our Family Giving campaign, we challenge you—our Girl Scout family—to take your commitment to building girls of courage, confidence, and character one step further.
They can’t wait to be Girl Scouts, but they can’t do it without you.
Questions? Please call, or email us we’d be happy to sit down with you to explore the possibilities. Contact email@example.com.
Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions made by their employees.
Applying is easy. Simply request a matching gift form from your employer and send it to us completed and signed with your gift. We will do the rest. The impact of your gift to Girl Scouts of Utah may be doubled or even tripled. Some companies will even match gifts made by retirees or spouses.

Every year at camp we see nervous, sometimes frightened, girls dropped off by their parents. By the time they leave camp a few days later, they are confident and happy. They have learned about many new things, like nature, pottery, rock climbing, and boating. Most importantly, they have made new friends that will last them a lifetime.
These 3-day to 3-week camps range in price from $95 to $350 per girl. However, the actual cost of camp without subsidization ranges as high as $185 to $760. Camp costs are kept affordable through diligent efforts of staff, and we will never cut corners where the health and safety of girls is concerned.
But we can't do it alone. Just as Girl Scouts may have impacted you in your youth, you can impact a girl's life today. With your gift, you allow a girl to experience Girl Scout Camp and make the Mission of Girl Scouting real for a girl who couldn't otherwise afford to go to camp.
If you believe that going to camp is a valuable way to increase self-confidence, leadership skills, and a sense of accomplishment, please join us in providing the camp experience to girls who cannot afford it. You CAN make a huge difference with even a small donation!
