Why isn’t my username working?
Your username is typically your email address. If you have more than one email address, try each. You can also use the “Forgot Your Password?” link to send a reset email to your email address. If you’re still having trouble, contact our Customer Care team.
Why am I not receiving the password reset emails?
The password reset emails come from email@example.com, so please make sure it’s added to your safe senders list. If you requested the reset email before marking our email address as safe, check your spam folder. If you’re still not receiving the email, contact our Customer Care team to verify that your username/email address is correct.
How do I reset my password when I no longer have access to the email address associated with my account?
Our Customer Care team can easily change your username/email address without requiring you to recreate your account. Contact us to get started.
Why can’t I see my family when I log in?
There are a couple reasons this could happen:
Another adult family member may be listed as the preferred contact on the account. That person must log in to renew. Contact our Customer Care team if you’d like to be listed as your household’s preferred contact.
You may have a second or duplicate account with a different email address. Try a different username. If that works, be sure to contact our Customer Care team to merge the two accounts into one.
Why can’t I see my troop(s) when I log in?
There are several reasons this could happen:
Troops are listed on a separate tab from your family. If you have more than one troop, look for the pull-down menu to change between them.
Check your member profile to make sure you’re listed as a volunteer in the troop.
Not all troop volunteers can access the troop tab. Contact us to see which volunteer roles they allow to access the tab.
If your background check has expired, you may lose access until it is up-to-date.
Our Customer Care team can provide additional support.
Proudly supported by Daisy’s Circle (GSKSMO’s monthly giving program) and its generous supporters, the Opportunity Fund provides financial assistance for a variety of areas including:
“The work of today is the history of tomorrow, and we are its makers.” -Juliette Gordon Low
Juliette Gordon Low, the founder of Girl Scouts, believed that every girl had the right to be a Girl Scout. Today, we continue this tradition by providing support to ensure every girl who wants to be a Girl Scout can do so. Girl Scouts are encouraged to use financial literacy programs, such as the Cookie Program and Candy, Nut & Magazine Program, to raise funds for troop activities while learning vital business skills; however, these programs do not always fulfill the needs of girls with significant financial obstacles. Proudly supported by generous donors, including members of Daisy’s Circle (GSKSMO’s monthly giving program), the Opportunity Fund provides assistance in a variety of areas so girls may achieve their Girl Scouting dreams.
Any Girl Scout may apply for funding for uniforms, resident camp, and day camp. They must demonstrate a need for assistance in the application. Applications are accepted year-round, and we recommend submitting them in August to be considered when the maximum amount of funds is available for the calendar year.
Once the application is submitted, a response will be sent notifying you of the status of your application within ten business days.
Please note funds are limited and are not guaranteed. Any assistance provided by the Opportunity Fund is not 100% of any given activity or cost. If you apply and receive approval for funds, the amount displayed is only an estimate and is available only as long as funds are available. We recommend using funds as early as possible as the amount of funding available may decrease as the year progresses and funds are distributed.
