Ways to Donate to GSAK

There are many ways to give to GSAK!

In addition to a traditional one-time or recurring donation, our supporters give to GSAK in a variety of ways. Whichever path(s) you chose, your gift enables us to: 

  • Expand leadership opportunities for girls in areas that fill critical talent gaps, 
  • Reach more girls in underserved communities, 
  • Improve our camp properties, and 
  • Develop volunteers to ensure high-quality program delivery. 

Your gift will help girls realize their dreams and become tomorrow’s leaders. Through your generosity, they will grow into active, engaged members of their communities and develop their full potential in their chosen fields.

Gifts in kind
