For Cookie Sellers

When you sell Girl Scout Cookies, you're doing more than helping your customers stock up on delicious treats (and having lots of fun). You're doing it with a goal in mind—a goal to power new, unique, and amazing experiences for yourself and your troop all year long!

Whether that goal is an unforgettable trip to an exciting new place, a STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) project that will change the way you look at the world, or an opportunity to attend Girl Scout camp and make a lifetime of memories, you know how many boxes you need to sell to make it happen. 

But did you know that you're also part of something even bigger—something thousands of awesome girls nationwide who are just like you are part of too? That’s right. When you participate in the Girl Scout Cookie Program, you’re part of the largest girl-led entrepreneurial program in the world—and that’s kind of a huge deal! Having the opportunity to run your very own cookie business gives you skills essential for success today and in the future:

   Goal Setting

   Decision Making

   Money Management 

   People Skills

   Business Ethics

Benefits of Participating

Thank you for supporting the Girl Scout Cookie Program. More than a way to raise money, this program is a hands-on leadership and entrepreneurial program that equips Girl Scouts with financial literacy tools they’ll take into high school, college and beyond.

By participating, girls go on adventures in other parts of the world, take one step closer to earning a college scholarship, and learn skills to work on earning their Gold Award – the highest award in Girl Scouting.


Thank you for supporting the largest girl-led business in the world. Girl Scouts of all levels are invited to participate and it’s a great way for them to fund their program activities – from community service projects to fun activities! It’s more than what’s in the box…it’s about your daughter developing important financial literacy skills while having a blast with her friends. We can’t wait for you to be a part of this journey!
