When you buy delicious Girl Scout Cookies, you’re helping to power new, unique, and amazing experiences for girls—experiences that broaden their worlds, help them learn essential life skills, and prepare them to practice a lifetime of leadership.
79 percent of the money stays local! That’s right, all the money that a council and its troops raise through the Girl Scout Cookie Program—every penny after paying the baker—stays with that council and its troops. Girl Scout councils do not provide any portion of their cookie revenue to Girl Scouts of the USA.
Your cookie purchase not only supports girls’ success, but helps cookie entrepreneurs learn essential life skills like goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, business ethics and so much more. Read answers to Frequently Asked Questions about the Girl Scout Cookie Program.
How the Cookie Program Makes Girl Scouts Possible
When customers buy Girl Scout Cookies, they’re helping power amazing experiences for Girl Scouts and Troops that broaden their worlds, help them learn essential life skills, and prepare them to practice a lifetime of leadership. Cookie proceeds stay local, which means after the costs of baking the cookies and program logistics (like transporting them!), 71% of the cost of each box is reinvested in River Valleys Girl Scouts!
