    Lifetime membership is available to any individual who accepts the principles and beliefs of the Girl Scout Movement, 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 a discounted $200 rate for young alums (applies to any former Girl Scout under age 30) and current volunteers with 10 or more years of service. 

  • 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.


    Now, when you sign up as a lifetime member, $25 of your dues automatically fund a year of Girl Scouting for a girl in an underserved community in your area.

    Girl Scouts can be a life-changing experience—and you can give that to a girl who might not otherwise have the opportunity.


We are making every effort to fulfill lifetime membership materials in a timely manner, but COVID-19 restrictions may delay delivery. Thank you for your understanding.
