What is SHARE?
We ask that our Girl Scout families contribute a free-will, tax-deductible donation to Girl Scouts of Central Maryland. We’re not asking everyone to give big, just to give what they can and cumulatively these gifts help our girls grow strong. There is no need to wait. Please give today.
SHARE is an investment in the future of your daughter(s), your community, and the Girl Scouts of Central Maryland community.
100% of your SHARE gift remains local and is put directly back into the operations of our council through program, membership, and volunteer activities and materials. SHARE funds help subsidize the annual cost of Girl Scouting at $219.64 a year, per girl. Please give what you can. Please give generously.
