Can Girl Scouts raise money for other charities, organizations, or a good cause?
As a member of Girl Scouts, you cannot raise money for other organizations. However, groups can decide to give donations of funds already earned, or goods purchased from group funds, to a cause or another charity. For example, a Girl Scout group might purchase groceries for a shelter at Thanksgiving or “adopt” an animal at the zoo. Groups can also volunteer at events. They can give out water bottles, for example, or cheer on runners. Just be sure that your presence does not give the perception of endorsing a product, political cause, or candidate.
