2017-2018 Membership Fee Increase

  • Starting with the 2017-2018 membership year, the annual girl membership fee will increase to $30 ($25 GSUSA Membership Fee + $5 Council Service Fee) and the adult membership fee to $25. In 2016, Girl Scouts of the USA’s National Board voted to approve a $10 increase in annual membership dues, which goes into effect at the start of the 2017-18 membership year. At just over $0.83 more per month, the membership fee increase will support Girl Scouts’ vision to serve as many girls as possible through innovative programming including outdoors and STEM. Girl Scouts of Alaska will continue to offer financial assistance and serve all girls, regardless of socioeconomic background.
