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.

New! Cookie Wrap—Up Sale

We are extending the Cookie Sale Program for an additional 2 weeks! Why? To allow troops an opportunity to continue selling into March in hopes of warmer weather and additional sale opportunities.

  • $25 bonus to troops who check out and sell at least 2 cases (24 boxes).
  • Troops can check out cookies “on consignments” from GSDH Cupboards.
  • Troops can return only UNOPENED cases checked out during the Wrap-Up Sale time frame.
  • Unsold/unopened cases must be returned to GSDH by April 1, 2016.
  • Troops cannot return more than the number of cases checked out during the Wrap-Up Sale.
  • Troops and Service Units continue to earn per box proceeds.
  • Girl Scouts do not earn recognitions during the Wrap-Up Sale.

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!

Dakota Dough (formerly Dakota Certificates)

Dakota Dough is GSDH issued money vouchers that can be spent on any Girl Scout related activity and materials. This can include troop programming fees, camp fees, approved Service Unit activity fees, uniforms, girl membership registration fees and in the Retail Stores.

Dakota dough will be calculated using a new formula for the 2016 Cookie Sale Program. Dakota Dough will now be calculated in ranges and be distributed to the troop at the end of the sale. Troop Leaders are encouraged to meet with parents and girls to set troop goals and determine how to use the Dakota Dough. Click here for the ranges.
