How do Cookie proceeds benefit girls?
The Cookie Program is vital to GSWPA’s mission of building girls of courage, confidence and character.
Funds raised through the Cookie Program help pay for many aspects of Girl Scouting:
- keeps camp affordable by subsidizing the registration cost;
- supports the Girl Scout Leadership Experience which includes Girl Programming, curriculum and events; and
- provides grants to girls and troops with financial barriers, so that Girl Scouting is available to all girls.
Girls also earn proceeds for their individual troop, which are used for troop activities and service projects within their communities.
This year, when girls earn Cookie Dough through recognitions, they'll automatically double the value when using it toward Girl Scout Camp!
