Book of Basic Documents specifies “All money raised, or earned,
and other assets received in the name of and for the benefit of Girl
Scouting must be authorized by a Girl Scout Council or Girl Scouts of
the USA and used for the purposes of Girl Scouting. Such monies and
other assets become the property of and are administered by the Girl
Scout Council or GSUSA. Such assets are not the property of
individuals, geographic units, or communities within the Girl Scout Council.”
Donations of $250 or more must be received by Girl Scouts of
Kentucky’s Wilderness Road. Once the Donation Authorization
Form is completed and approved, GSKWR will accept and acknowledge the
contribution as a nonprofit organization on behalf of the requesting
troop/group. GSKWR will transfer donated funds to the troop/group once
they are received. If a donor contributes less than $250 and requests
an acknowledgement letter for tax purposes, the donation must be
received by GSKWR and a Donation Authorization Form must be completed.
Troops and Service Units may not apply for corporate or foundation
grants without prior Council approval. For more information, please

Troops drop down header.
