The Annual reFund 2021 EMAIL

We want to help you raise extra money for your Girl Scouts!

How does it work?

Partner with a business in your area to support Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta. 50% of each donation will benefit the Annual Fund and 50% will be refunded to your Service Unit (up to $250).

All business sponsors will receive a tax-deductible donation letter.

How can you participate?
  • Host a Restaurant Spirit Night! Check with restaurants and other businesses in your area to see if they offer spirit night opportunities where a portion of the proceeds from an evening or day are donated to a nonprofit organization.
  • Ask a Business to Support Girl Scouts! Ask a business in your community for a donation made payable to Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta or to donate a portion of sales to Girl Scouts. Think about your local dry cleaner, nail salon, real estate agent, insurance agent, law firm, etc.

    You can use this Service Unit Solicitation Letter template when communicating with businesses. The letter explains the Annual reFund program and includes the Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta Tax ID number.

FAQ

How can you use the refund?
GSGATL is not putting any limits on how a Service Unit or troop uses its refund. As long as the use is in line with Girl Scout policies, standards & procedures found in Volunteer Essentials, then you are free to distribute the ReFund however you see fit. You can use the money to fund summer day camps, offer financial aid for girls to attend events, provide badge supplies for troop meetings, etc. The choice is up to you!
