Girl Scout Cookie Program
When you make a Girl Scout Cookie purchase, you’re helping the next generation of young female entrepreneurs get an important taste of what it takes to be successful—teamwork, planning, and a positive outlook (and that’s just the beginning).
Proceeds from the Girl Scout Cookie Program stay local within our council to power new experiences for Girl Scouts in eastern Iowa and western Illinois. From customers to volunteers, supporters of the Girl Scout Cookie Program are narrowing the entrepreneurship gap between women and men by nurturing a go-getter spirit in today’s girls.

More Than a Century of Girl Scout Cookie History
Most people have a special place in their heart for Girl Scout Cookies. The program, which is the largest girl-led entrepreneurial program for girls in the world, helps Girl Scouts fund unique adventures for themselves and their troops all year long. It also allows them to give back to the causes they’re most passionate about—it’s the Girl Scout way!
It all started in 1917, when Girl Scouts in Muskogee, Oklahoma, did what Girl Scouts everywhere always do: they had a great idea, got together, and took action to make it a reality. The girls of Mistletoe Troop hit on the clever idea to fund their projects by selling cookies they made at home in their own kitchens. So simple—and so smart! Other troops took note, and the idea of Girl Scouts selling cookies took off.
Girl Scout Cookies Fuel A Century of Adventure for Girls
Fast forward to today, when more than a million amazing girls will sell hundreds of millions of boxes of Girl Scout Cookies to support their mission of making the world a better place. But there’s more work to be done—and more amazing experiences to be had—and we need everyone’s involvement!
