Background: Membership dues annually provide the single largest source of revenue to Girl Scouts of the USA. The last increase in membership dues approved by the National Council went into effect in October 2003 and raised the dues to the current $10 level. Over the past 40 years, the National Council has approved dues increases approximately every six years.
