Girl Scout Cookies Sale Program, Fall Product Sale Program and Money-earning Activities
As girls and troops participate in the Girl Scout Cookie Sale Program, Nut, Candy, and Magazine Sale Program and other money-earning activities, they earn a portion of the proceeds that go directly back to them to support their Girl Scout activities – including annual re-registration fees, program participation fees, troop/group celebrations and travel, and community service projects. And, as part of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, the girls (with guidance from their adult volunteers) decide how their funds will be used.
