What would be an appropriate monetary gift for a high school graduate that is a "great-niece'?

I think it depends on you financial ability. I know people who give $5.00 in a church offering and some give $50.00. The little old lady that gave $5.00 gave a much larger gift per here ability then the professional person who gave $50.00.
We went to a baptism for a good friends child and gave $50.00 and my wife bought some religious token things also. Perhaps something in that amount would be appropriate for your G-niece?

Depends. Are you close to her at all or did you just get in invite because they thought they would get some money out of it? If you think they just want some money then I would go with something like a The Jelly of the Month Club membership just to be ornery.

That's $79.00 American.

I think $20.00 to $50.00 is fine too.

I gave my youngest 1st cousin, Wyatt, who just gradulated high school, $50.00 and an invite to go hunting. He is very interested in going hunting. He has shot competitive skeet for years, but has never hunted. When he was little, he thought all the animals at the zoo came from me.

I am proud of him. He turned into a really nice young man. He was offered scholarships for football, track, wrestling and academics and took a full academic scholarship to college. He won wrestling, at the State Level twice, placed well in track and played varsity football all 4 years in highschool.

Give what you feel is an appropriate gift. Don't worry about how much, if they are a good kid they will appreciate the gift no matter what it is or how much.

Like what was said before, how close are you to them? My aunts and uncles are close to mine and my brothers kids so my niece and my son both received very generous gifts( to generous if ya ask me). I would say $25 to $100.
