Support our Guides
Girl Guides SA has been providing a safe, all-girl environment that invites girls to challenge themselves, to find their voice, meet new friends, have fun and make a difference for over 100 years. Your generous support will enable us to keep Girl Guides SA operating and provide events and opportunities for girls of all ages. We rely on the generosity of individuals like you. Your support of Girl Guides SA is vital to the development of girls now and in the future.
Girl Guides South Australia acknowledges that some girls may not be able to join, or continue Guiding, due to the financial impact on their families. GGSA has established ‘I Got You Girl’, a financial sponsorship that allows donated funds to provide girls with access to Girl Guides.
Funds will primarily be used to cover membership fees but can contribute to unit experiences like camps, excursions and activities. If you would like to support our mission to give all girls the opportunities to reach their potential, get in touch with head office or click the below link.
Will contribute towards a girl’s fees or uniform so they can gain life skills, knowledge and values.
Will contribute towards a young woman’s fee for leadership development training.
Will sponsor a new Girl Guides membership for a year. Giving her the opportunity to grow, learn, share and create.

Girl Guides South Australia has been there for thousands of girls and young women for more than one hundred years. Today more and more families and young people are turning to the organisation to provide a non-formal, educative approach that involves the environment and community.
Sponsorship can assist Girl Guides South Australia to provide programs that support girls and young women with the skills and opportunities to become community members who make a difference.
We work closely with our philanthropic supporters to identify projects and activities that inspire your business and builds a connection between your donation and your community. You may choose to support a specific project or allow us to direct your donation to where it is needed the most. Whichever you choose, we offer tailored updates on the impact of your gift. Some examples of sponsorship, but not limited too:
- Sponsor a program badge,
