mission statement




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
