The Alumni Association’s primary purpose is to enhance the program at the Northern Lakes Girl Scout Canoe Base. To achieve this goal, the association relies on your donations of both time and money. If you have additional ideas on how you can help support the NLCBAA, please contact [email protected]


Monetary Donations

One of the easiest ways to support our organization and the canoe base is through a monetary donation. The NLCBAA is a 501(c)(3) NON-PROFIT corporation! This means that all donations are tax-deductible. There are a few ways you can give a monetary donation to the NLCBAA:

Donation Matching Program: Some companies match donations of employees for non-profits. If you work for a company that does this, we recommend making donations through your company’s program to maximize your donation. The EIN Number for the NLCBAA is 412188973. If you have any additional questions for setting up the NLCBAA with your company’s matching donation program, please contact our Board Chair.

PayPal: To send us a secure donation using PayPal, please click on the button below.

Personal Check: You can send donations via a personal check to:
Northern Lakes Canoe Base Alumni Association
1092 Hawthorne Ave E.
St. Paul, MN 55106


Donations of Time

Currently the main project the organization is working on is Participant Recruitment. You can help with this project by advertising the program to your local council. If you have already done this, we would like to know! If you would like some guidance and/or material on how you can do this, please contact [email protected]

Additionally, you can give donations of time by coming to a work weekend at the canoe base. There is usually one work weekend in late spring and we always need more volunteers! To find out about upcoming work weekends, please check out our Events page.

Good Search Donations

Another way to make a monetary donation is to use www.Goodsearch.com when you want to run a search online. The Northern Lakes Canoe Base Alumni Association is registered and approved, so every time you run a search on Goodsearch, the NLCBAA gets roughly a penny! By changing your searching habits, you are supporting the canoe base. Here’s how it works:

Go to www.Goodsearch.com
Type (Northern Lakes Canoe Base Alumni Association) into the “I support” box and click on “verify”.
Search the Internet just like you would with any search engine.
Since GoodSearch shares its advertising revenue with charities and schools, every time you search the web at GoodSearch, you’ll be earning money for us.

GoodSearch also has a toolbar you can download from the homepage so that you can search right from the top of your browser. You can keep track of our estimated earnings by clicking on “amount raised” once you designate us as your organization of choice. The more people who use the site, the more money we’ll earn, so please spread the word!
