Tribute gift

Honor a loved one with a tribute gift
What better way to recognize someone’s dedication to Girl Scouting than to honor them with a tribute gift?

Tribute gifts are given in memory of someone who has passed away, or in honor of someone who is living. A card of sincere appreciation will be sent to the honoree or family announcing your gift. We will respect your privacy by not disclosing the amount of your gift.

You can also make a tribute gift online.

A Matched Gift from your employer

Many companies have volunteer matching gift programs through which the company will make a monetary gift to match the number of hours an employee dedicates to serving a charitable organization. 

We encourage volunteers to learn more about their company's procedures to secure a matching gift. The gifts may be designated to the troop, camp, or program area to which the volunteer/employee has given their time.

Here is how it works:

  • A volunteer contacts their human resource department and requests a form to document their volunteer service. 
  • The complany sends the gift to GSWISE.
  • A member of the philanthropy team processes the gift. 
  • It is confirmed that the designated troop is in good standing.
  • Funds are automatically deposited into the troop's account.
  • Volunteers receive a thank you letter.
  • The company receives a receipt acknowledging thier tax-deductible donation in recogniation of their employee's volunteer hours.

 

Legacy giving

Gifts of stock
A gift of stock is appreciated because stock generally offers a two-fold tax savings. First, you avoid paying any capital gains tax on the increase in value of the stock. Second, you receive an income tax deduction for the full fair market value of the stock at the time of the gift.

Gifts of life insurance
A gift of life insurance can provide a significant charitable deduction. You could purchase a new policy or donate a policy that you currently own but no longer need. To receive a deduction, designate Girl Scouts of Wisconsin Southeast as both the owner and beneficiary of the life insurance policy. Check with your insurance agent for the details.

Bequests
Girl Scouts of Wisconsin Southeast can be named as beneficiary in your will in any of the following ways:
• An outright gift
• With a designated dollar amount of a percentage of the value of your estate
• We can be named as a remainder beneficiary to receive funds only after specific sums have been paid to individual beneficiaries.
• Check with your estate attorney to learn more
