Corporate, Foundations and United Way
Girl Scouts of Central & Southern NJ welcomes gifts from the business and philanthropic communities. Generous support from corporations, charitable foundations, local civic organizations and the United Way ensures Girl Scouting remains affordable and accessible to all girls.
We actively seek partnerships with large and small corporations, locally owned businesses, business associations and professional organizations with links to the business community to collaborate with us to deliver the Girl Scout Leadership Experience.
Corporations and businesses throughout our communities provide generous support each year. Gifts may be designated to underwrite Girl Scouting in a specific area or to underwrite a council program, such as STEM, Healthy Living, Forever Green, career exploration, community volunteerism or Girl Scouts Outreach programs.
Philanthropic and or charitable foundations may make contributions to Girl Scouts of Central & Southern NJ at the council level. Due to regulations and other legal statutes, grants may only be applied for and accepted by an authorized employee of Girl Scouts of Central & Southern NJ.
Special Event Sponsorships
The Girl Scouts of Central & Southern NJ host two fundraising events per year. In the fall, An Evening of Monopoly puts the fun in fundraising with opportunities for our adult members and community supports to come together for a good cause. In the spring, we host our Women of Distinction and Girl Leadership Summit, bringing together role models for our girls and leadership workshops including College 101, Money Smarts and more.
Corporate Employer Match & Volunteerism Contributions
Corporate programs that provide contributions to 501(c)(3) organizations based on the donations or volunteerism of its employees can be used to support Girl Scouts. Contributions will be credited to the Annual Fund goal or the employee may select to designate those funds to a specific program within the council, (e.g.: camp financial aid).
Corporations may choose to give gifts-in-kind of materials or products, which may be accepted when the gift can be used immediately by GSCSNJ. Gifts-in-kind for which donors are eligible for a charitable gift deduction will be acknowledged by an itemized receipt however, the donor will be responsible for reporting gifts at their fair value, in accordance with current IRS regulations.
