Four Easy Ways to Support GSSI

It means so much to us when our supportors make a donation or attend a fund-raising event to support Girl Scouting.  It's heartening to know that there are so many people dedicated to helping us achieve our mission of building girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place.  Here are some additional everyday ways that friends and supporters can help us continue to provide the world's best leadership program for girls right here in our southern Illinois communities:

1) Schnucks eScrip

You can support GSSI simply by shopping at Schnucks!

Pick up an eScrip card from a GSSI Sevice Center or at any Schnucks store.
Register your card online or call 800-931-6258 and select Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois as a benefitting organization.
When you shop at Schnucks, have your card scanned when you check out and up to 3% of your purchase price will be donated to GSSI – at no additional cost to you!

2) Kroger

Simply enroll your Kroger Plus Card online at Once you’ve successfully enrolled, the organization you’ve chosen will earn rewards on all eligible purchases you make using your Kroger Plus Card. Learn more at or, call Kroger Customer Communications at 1-800-KROGERS, OPTION #3.

3) Ebay Giving Works

You can support GSSI each time you sell an item on ebay! Here’s how it works:
Seller lists item - List any item for your charity and donate between 10-100% of the proceeds
eBay collects donation - After the item sells, PayPal Giving Fund, eBay's nonprofit partner, collects your donated proceeds and eBay then credits your selling fees proportional to the amount donated.
Donation sent to charity - PayPal Giving Fund processes the donation and distributes it to your designated charity.
