Cookie Frequently Asked Questions
A: 100% of net proceeds from the Girl Scout Cookie Program stay local!
How the Cookie Crumbles:
A: Girl Scouts and troops use them to fund their fun! And because Girl Scouts is completely girl-led, the Girl Scouts themselves get to decide exactly what they do.
Our local Council uses Cookie Program proceeds to create incredible experiences and camps, support and train volunteers, offer financial assistance, maintain properties, and so much more. Every dollar that comes to the Council from the Girl Scout Cookie Program is used to make the Girl Scout experience incredible and support the Girl Scouts within our area.
We continue to hear from our Girl Scouts and volunteers that the shipping costs impact their cookie sales. We’re listening and bringing back the shipping subsidy for direct-ship cookie orders for the remainder of the Cookie Program! GSNWGL will pay half the shipping cost on direct ship orders, starting at 11:00 PM 2.9.2023 CT (midnight ET). The shipping subsidy is timely as it coincides with the Raspberry Rallies becoming available again.
