Your Top Lifetime Membership Questions Answered!
April is Volunteer Appreciation Month—and what better way to say thanks to our dedicated volunteers than with a discounted lifetime membership for volunteers with ten or more years of service? We know you have questions about this exciting limited-time offer, and we’ve got answers!
What are the benefits of becoming a lifetime member?
All Girl Scout lifetime members are eligible for a suite of benefits:
- You’ll stay connected with our new monthly alum and supporter enewsletter.
- Of your dues, $25 will automatically fund one year of Girl Scout membership for an underserved girl in your local council.
- Enjoy 10 percent off at Girl Scouts’ Official Online Shop by using a special code at checkout.
- You’ll be the first to know when the soon-to-be released official Girl Scout lifetime member scarf is available for purchase.
- You’ll get an invitation to join the national CEO call for lifetime members to hear updates on what’s going on across the Movement.
- As a lifetime member, you can enjoy a discount at the Edith Macy Conference Center in New York.
- A new lifetime membership pin, currently in production, will be available free of charge to anyone who signed up after October 1, 2017. Those eligible for a free pin will receive emailed instructions.
How do I take advantage of this limited-time offer and purchase my discounted lifetime membership?
If you have been a member within the past five years, please upgrade through MyGS. If you have not been a member within the past five years, please visit www.girlscouts.org/lifetime. The discounted lifetime membership will be available starting April 1, 2019, and end April 30, 2019, at 9:00 PM EST, so don’t wait!
Do years as a Girl Scout count toward the ten or more years of service?
No. Years as a Girl Scout (Daisy, Brownie, Junior, Cadette, Senior, Ambassador, and Juliettes) do not count toward the ten years to qualify for the promotion. However, the ten years do not need to be consecutive and you do not need to be a current volunteer to qualify.
