Our Annual Gift Program was reintroduced in 2005. As membership fees cover less than half the costs to operate Girl Guides, we are reliant on the generosity from our members, supporters and the wider community to raise funds to support our girls and volunteers.
Our core program is designed to develop leadership skills and opportunities for girls and young women aged 5-18. Challenges and meaningful community service stimulates self-discovery while allowing girls to develop their skills and self-confidence.
We open up a new way for girls to become a vital part of their community through the leadership skills aquired through the program.
As a volunteer organisation we are reliant on our members and supporters to provide their time and expertise to deliver the Australian Guide Program. We sincerely thank all volunteers for their extraordinary loyalty and the support which they give to girls and young women.
How will the funds be used?
A Gift to Girl Guides Victoria will allow us to continue to invest in our scholarship fund, called the Blackburn Bursary. The Bursary needs considerable reinvestment to continue to operate. This year 100% of the Annual Gift Program will be directed towards this fund.

Will I receive a receipt for my donation?
