The Girl Scout Cookie Program is such an important (and exciting!) part of the overall Girl Scout experience—tons of learning for her and beyond-delicious cookies for our awesome cookie customers! It’s a win-win.
Whether girls go door to door, set up booths at libraries and shopping centers, or sell cookies online with Digital Cookie®, they’re also preparing for a bright future. The Girl Scout Cookie Program lets girls show the world their entrepreneurial spirit as key members of the world’s largest girl-led business.
Every year Girl Scouts all over the country use their cookie earnings to do amazing things in their communities and beyond. From helping animal shelters and feeding the homeless to raising awareness about bullying, making public areas more accessible to people with disabilities, and tons more, Girl Scouts can and will do anything they put their hearts and minds to.
As cookie entrepreneurs, girls gain essential life skills and work as a team to accomplish common goals and solve problems, while building the confidence they need to shine as girls, as young women, and as future leaders. And did we mention fun? They have lots of that along the way, too.
And now with Digital Cookie, girls can do and learn even more—and have more fun than ever before—all while giving cookie customers more ways to support them and their goals.
Remember: smart cookies don’t just improve their own lives—they have the vision to change the world.
Toyota Financial Services (TFS) and Girl Scouts collaborate in helping girls become self-reliant; financially informed; and capable of using their talent, resources, and personal business values to make the world a better place. Thanks to the TFS partnership, our council is provided with grant funding for our participation in the “Driving My Financial Future" program, which helps bridge the divide between many girls’ and their families’ current economic health, and girls’ dreams of being financially independent. Through this important program, girls become financially confident and empowered as a means of pursuing their dreams.
