How will my gift be used by Girl Scouts River Valleys?

Your gift will support the general operating of Girl Scouts River Valleys and its premier Girl Scout Leadership Experience to support all girls as they make the world a better place. A gift to support our general operating budget allows the organization to be nimble and fund the most critical areas needed at any given moment.

Something came up and I can’t tune in that day—can I give now?

You can donate anytime.

When I tune in, will others be able to see me?

No. This is a one-way viewing experience. However, we encourage you to interact with other Girl Scout supporters and attendees through the event chat and on social media using #GirlScoutsRV or #CelebrateChangemakersRV

I logged in to Auction Harmony and I can see the event stream video, but when I click the buttons at the top menu it seems like nothing happens?

Scroll down on the page. On some screens, especially smaller ones like iPads, you might not see the buttons below the video to Make a Donation, Checkout, and Learn More. Scroll down on the page and you should see them. If you are having technical issues, please reach out to

How do I complete my online donation?

First, THANK YOU! You’ll be prompted to enter your credit card information when you make a donation (even if you plan on using a different payment method). Next, you’ll need to finalize your donation(s) by clicking the “checkout” button. There, you’ll see your total gift(s). Once you complete your donation, you’ll be emailed a receipt. If you pay by credit card, your card will be charged no later than Monday, May 17, 2021.

What if I want to pay for my donation with something other than a credit card such as a check, stock or Donor-Advised Fund?

No problem! You’ll still have to enter a credit card to donate, but when you checkout, select “I want to pay a different way.” Then specify your payment request and we’ll contact you to process the payment. You can pay by check, stock, or a gift vehicle like a donor-advised fund. You can also split your payment. Just add it in the notes section.

Why did I get an email from Auction Harmony that shows a remaining balance?

After you check out, Auction Harmony sends an automated email with a receipt that shows your donation as a “remaining balance.” This is simply because your card (or other gift payment) may not be processed until May 17, 2021.

What’s the hashtag?

Look at you being a social-media pro! Our hashtags are #GirlScoutsRV or #CelebrateChangemakersRV. Please share photos of you and your crew watching at home! Be sure to check out our Changemakers Party Packet that includes some social media props!


We look forward to Celebrating with you on Thursday, May 13 from 6:00–6:45 PM! If you have a question that wasn't answered, please email
