  • GSUSA-LTM-emblem
  • Overview

    Lifetime membership is available to any individual who accepts the principles and beliefs of the Girl Scout Promise and Law, pays the one-time lifetime membership fee, and is at least 18 years old (or a high school graduate or equivalent). Lifetime membership dues are $400, though we offer “young alum” lifetime membership for just $200 (applies to any former Girl Scout under age 30).

  • Impact

    Girl Scouts provides girls with programming in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM); the outdoors; entrepreneurship; and life skills—areas essential to preparing them for a lifetime of leadership, success, and adventure. Your investment in lifetime membership ensures that girls always have the support they need to reach their full potential and change the world.

  • Paying It Forward

    Now, when you sign up as a lifetime member, $25 of your dues will automatically fund one year of Girl Scout membership for an underserved girl in your local council. Girl Scouts can be a life-changing experience—and you can give that to a girl who might not otherwise have the opportunity.
