PrintCookie Sale Program

February 13—March 15, 2015

Thank you for taking the time as a Girl Scout Volunteer! Girl Scouts certainly would not be successful without your support to our Cookie Sale Program.

Troop Proceeds

Troops earn funds which should be used to support your Troops Girl Scout year! Have your Girl Scouts and Parents vote on how they want to use their funds earned for the year—after all the sale is for the Girls: purchase new uniforms, go to camp or purchase Journey Books for all the Girls are some examples. There are a million ways to use your funds earned by participating in the Cookie Sale Program. Girls learn skills along the way and have a ton of fun too!

Troops Earn
$.50 per box
Girl Scouts Earn $.15 or $.20 per box in Dakota Certificates
Dakota Certificate Policy/Guidelines
Service Units Earn
$.02 per box sold
Service Units also earn proceeds from all Troops who participate.
SU Proceed Policy/Guidelines
