I Can’t Wait…To Support Our Girl Scouts!

September 26, 2013

By Mary Jo Van H., Family Partnership Coordinator volunteer, Wake 13

GSNCCP-ICantWaitTo-MagentaAs a 20-year veteran Girl Scout, adult volunteer, Family Partnership coordinator and Family Partnership donor, I can’t wait to experience all the fun and exciting things that lie ahead this year for our Girl Scouts and their families!

I can’t wait to tell everyone why they should donate.

I can’t wait to show the bang they get for their buck.

I can’t wait for everyone to know that 86% of every dollar donated goes to program services.

Donations to Girl Scouts – NC Coastal Pines’ Family Partnership Campaign are important because EVERY girl deserves the opportunity to participate in Girl Scouts.  It assures that being a Girl Scout is affordable.  Imagine having to pay $180 per year – the cost to support one girl for one year.

Many years my family would have struggled and in all likelihood, my oldest would not have been able to grow from a Girl Scout Daisy to a Girl Scout Senior, earn her Girl Scout Silver and Gold Awards, or be serving as the Girl Scout leader that she is today without the support of this campaign.  Even some of the fees associated with required trainings for certain activities or volunteer roles, despite being low, would have been a financial strain for our family.

I can’t wait for everyone to know that by giving to Family Partnership, they ensure our leaders supported; they ensure our camps affordable for all girls; they ensure our events accessible to our Girl Scouts and their families; they ensure our volunteers are well trained; and most importantly, they make certain our Girl Scouts have every opportunity to grow into Tomorrow’s Leaders.

There are many stories of why adults participate in this campaign.  Hear from supporters in this video and you’ll understand why you should give to Family Partnership. You’ll be the one saying “I can’t wait to contribute to Family Partnership.”

And if you can’t wait another minute, donate now!


The Early Bird Catches the Worm – 2014 Registration is Open

April 3, 2013

By Leslie Flood, Chief Business Officer

Wow – the 2014 Early Bird Registration opened on April 2 and we already have Girl Scouts – NC Coastal Pines troops renewing their memberships.  A big thank you to Troops 864, 1754, 210, 1152 and 1744!

Register Online Now to Receive a $10 Council Gift Card

Early Bird Patch 2013

Early Bird Patch 2013

Each troop that re-registers online by June 20th with at least 5 girl and 2 adult members will receive a $10 Council gift card and Early Bird patches for each girl and leader registering early.

Did you know that we have a new membership fee for 2014? At the 2011 National Council Session in Houston, delegates voted to increase the annual and lifetime membership dues starting with the 2014 membership year. Annual GSUSA dues for girls and adults will be $15.00.

The lifetime membership fee is 25 times the annual fee, so on October 1, 2013, the lifetime fee for adults will be $375. If you are interested in purchasing a lifetime membership, please take advantage of the current fee and save $75.

Lifetime Membership makes a Great Gift!

Lifetime membership is a great gift and a great value for our dedicated Girl Scout Ambassadors. Girl Scouts who will graduate high school this year can purchase a lifetime membership at the reduced rate of $156. Girls also have the option to pay all or part of the reduced lifetime membership fee with their Cookie Dough.

Family Partnership Donation!

Renewal time is Family Partnership donation time. A new feature in CORE now allows you to donate to Family Partnership when you renew your membership.  Thanks for your support!

Whether you register on C.O.R.E.  or by paper, please take time now to renew your membership for the 2014 year! The online process is quick and simple and can be done by the parents (preferred) or through the Troop Management link.  If you have any questions, please contact us at

Troops not using the online registration system can register early too by completing and returning their paper girl and adult registration forms with one troop check per batch.  Troops must submit their paper registrations by June 20 to receive their Early Bird patches.
