CHASE Community Giving

We have been selected for participation in the Chase Community Giving 2012 Program, with the opportunity to receive up to $250,000! Supporters who use Facebook can participate by visiting facebook.com/ChaseCommunityGiving and voting for Girl Scouts OSW. Supporters who are Chase customers can also vote at www.ChaseGiving.com. The 196 charities with the most votes will share in $5 million in grants. 

You can help by voting for GSOSW and encouraging everyone you know to do the same.

Eileen Fisher

September 10- October 6, 2012
Each Facebook user can earn $5 for GSOSW’s Girl Scouts Beyond Bars program – YES, $5 per supporter – by visiting www.facebook.com/EILEENFISHERNY and posting a brief, 1-2 sentence description of why supporting women and girls is important to them. They will be given the opportunity to select GSOSW as the recipient of a $5 donation provided by Eileen Fisher. 

Eileen Fisher is donating a total of $10,000 to 26 organizations, so it's important for us to act quickly!

Shop and save! Additionally, the Eileen Fisher store at Bridgeport Village in Tigard, Oregon will be hosting a special shopping event on September 22, during which 10% of all sales go to the Girl Scouts Beyond Bars program. Shoppers will receive $25 off of purchases of $50 or more. Online shoppers can enter 529100 at checkout. Girl Scout staff and girls will be present at the event to discuss the program, and Girl Scouting in general, with shoppers.
