Girl Scout Lifetime Membership

Our lifetime members are a cherished part of our family. By making a commitment to Girl Scouts, you will be supporting the Lifetime Membership Endowment Fund, which is used to develop and extend Girl Scout membership to all girls. Lifetime membership as a Girl Scout adult is available to any individual who accepts the principles and beliefs of the Girl Scout Movement, pays the one-time lifetime membership cost, and is 18 years of age or older or is a high school graduate or the equivalent.

Lifetime membership dues are $375 (25 times the annual dues). A special lifetime membership, at the reduced cost of $195 (13 times the annual dues), is offered to girls who are registered Girl Scouts 14–17 at the time of their high school graduation, provided they apply for lifetime membership before their current annual membership expires.

You will receive from GSUSA:

  • A lifetime membership certificate signed by the Chair of the National Board of Directors
  • A lifetime membership card
  • Information on how you can purchase a lifetime membership pin
  • A lifelong connection with a mission-focused, values-driven organization that helps girls develop as happy and resourceful citizens

To become a lifetime member, print  an adult membership registration form and in the green strip above your name, indicate “Lifetime Member.” In the gray block to the right of your personal information, indicate if you are already an adult or are a graduating Ambassador. Complete the application and bring it with your payment to the service center most convenient to you. If you prefer, mail your application and payment to the following address:

A lifetime membership booth will also be available at the Annual Meeting on April 26, 2014 to accept lifetime membership registrations or to answer your questions about lifetime membership.
