Girl Scout cookies are delicious, everyone agrees. But the sales of those cookies do so much to enrich the lives of Girl Scouts in your community. The five essential skills girls learn in the Girl Scout Cookie Program are goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics—skills essential to leadership, success and life. One hundred percent (100%) of the net revenue raised through Girl Scout Cookie sales stays with local councils, and girls decide how their troop cookie money is spent.
Today, nearly 1 million Girl Scouts participate in the Girl Scout Cookie Program, generating nearly $800 million in cookie sales during the average season. All of the net revenue raised through the Girl Scout Cookie Program—100% of it— stays with the local council and troops. With over 50 million households purchasing cookies every season, the irresistible treats can be found nationwide and will hold a beloved place in Americana for years to come, continuing to help girls take the lead and, ultimately, change the world.
Girl Scout Cookies not only help Girl Scouts earn money for fun, educational activities and community projects, but also play a huge role in guiding girls to discover their inner G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader) as they learn essential life skills that will stay with them forever.
Girl Scout Cookies can only be purchased from a registered Girl Scout. To find Girl Scouts selling cookies near you, visit www.gsgms.org or use the official Girl Scout Cookie Finder app, free on iOS and Android devices. ###
We're Girl Scouts of the USA. We're 2.5 million strong—more than 1.7 million girls and 750,000 adults who believe in the power of every G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader) ™ to change the world. Our extraordinary journey began more than 100 years ago with the original G.I.R.L., Juliette Gordon “Daisy” Low. On March 12, 1912, in Savannah, Georgia, she organized the very first Girl Scout troop, and every year since, we’ve honored her vision and legacy, building girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place. We’re the preeminent leadership development organization for girls.
