The Girl Scout Cookie Program is fun for girls, but also helps girls develop their leadership and entrepreneurial skills. As the largest girl-led business in the country, the program allows girls to earn proceeds that can help them fulfill their dreams. Cookie proceeds are often used to fund service projects right in the community. Plus, girls learn goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics.

Host a Rally!
Cookie Rallies are a fun way to cheer on the girls and get them excited about this learning experience that will also help them earn funds for upcoming Girl Scout activities! Your rally can include fun activities and important information your girls and parents need to know. Our Rally Guide will help you organize and host a fun and informative cookie rally. Whatever type of rally you decide to host, it's sure to inspire your Girl Scouts to jump into the Cookie Program!
Each week, our Product Sales Department sends out a Cookie Chat newsletter to help you stay on track and meet all the deadlines. Cookie Chats are sent to Cookie Managers, but anyone can use the information. We'll post each Cookie Chat here so you can access them anytime!

The Digital Cookie® platform online and mobile channels make it easy for cookie fans near and far to order their favorites online, pay by credit card, and support your sale. Girls who used the platform in addition to traditional sales, sold more cookies and reached their goals faster! Plus, on a girl's very own personalized cookie site, she gets to play interactive games, watch videos, enjoy printable activities, take fun quizzes and more—all while taking her entrepreneurship skills to the next level and earning cool cookie business badges along the way.
Donations of cookies
During order taking and cookie booth sales, customers are able to designate cookie purchases as donations for our Cookies from Home program, which are later delivered to Blue Star Mothers of America and the National Guard, who arrange distribution of the cookies to our troops. In addition, a portion of the donated cookies are provided to local food pantries.
