About Girl Scout Cookies
Think Outside the Cookie Box
The Girl Scout Cookie Program provides all Girl Scouts with opportunities to earn their own money and make their own choices!
All Girl Scouts are encouraged to earn their scouting funds instead of having a check written. Why? Imagine a Kindergartener who knows they earned the funds to go on an amazing field trip. lmagine an 11th grader traveling to Switzerland on the money they’ve earned. Entrepreneurship creates life-changing experiences for Girl Scouts and builds financial literacy in a way no other program can.
Dream it, earn it, do it. That's the Girl Scout difference.
Will they help the local animal shelter across town or plant a community garden for friends and neighbors? Cross the country to see the Grand Canyon, or cross an ocean for the travel experience of a lifetime? Go to summer camp, or earn one of Girl Scouting’s highest awards? It’s up to them and their troop—they own their adventure!
That’s the thing. When youth members participate in the Girl Scout Cookie Program, they get more than life-changing experiences and adventure. They also develop essential life skills—goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics—all while soaring in confidence and practicing leadership the Girl Scout way to lift one another up and change the world, together.
The best part is this: as a customer, you help equip Girl Scouts with the confidence and know-how they need to dream big and do bigger. You’re also giving yourself and your family the simple, powerful joy of biting into a delicious Girl Scout Cookie with lots of love, inspiration, and purpose in every bite. It’s a sweet reminder that just like Girl Scouts, you too can be brave, resilient, and dedicated to making the world a better place, no matter what.
Give cookies to a friend, enjoy them yourself, or donate them to a local cause—every bite counts!
