About Girl Scout Cookies

When you buy Girl Scout Cookies, you feed joy and make a difference with every box.

Will your Girl Scout Cookie entrepreneur help the local hospital or animal shelter across town? Climb her first mountain? Start a nonprofit? It’s up to her and her troop. Proceeds stay local to power life-changing programs, experiences, and learning all year long!

When girls participate in the Girl Scout Cookie Program, they also develop important life skills—goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics—that will set girls up for success beyond anything they can imagine.

That’s why we ask you to buy the delicious cookies you crave from your local Girl Scout Cookie business pro—not from her parents. You’ll enjoy your favorite cookies even more knowing you helped her do all the amazing things she’s got planned for this year while also learning a ton along the way.

More Than a Century of Girl Scout Cookie History

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!

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.
