Fund the Fun!

Delicious? Yes. 

But there's SO much more to the Cookie and MagNut Programs!

The MagNut Program in the fall and the iconic Cookie Program in the winter help girls and troops earn funds for amazing adventures through Girl Scouts! 

Maybe they'll travel to the Big Apple to take in the city sights, or spend a week ziplining, horseback riding and canoeing at camp. Or maybe they'll take a trip to the "moon," just like Troop 51514 did last year. It's up to her and her troop!

Plus, when girls participate in the Cookie and MagNut programs, they develop important life skills that will set them up for a lifetime of success.

The Girl Scout Cookie Program is the world's largest girl-led business. Girls set their own goals, keep track of their orders and even manage their sale and earn badges online through Digital Cookie. 

Troop Proceeds
Troops earn $.70 per package sold. Junior, Cadette and Ambassador troops that opt-out of girl recognitions receive an additional $.05 per package, and troops with a per girl average (PGA) of 175 or more earn an additional $.05 per package. Troops with a PGA of 160 packages or more can earn an exclusive Super Troop t-shirt for each girl selling and one t-shirt for an adult volunteer.

Girl Recognitions
Along with the five skills girls learn through the Cookie Program and proceeds earned by troops, girls ean individual recognitions for their hard work. They can choose between fun prizes or Girl Scout Bucks that may be used for GSWPA camps and programs, service unit-sponsored day camps, Council Shops and Girl Scout registration fees. Girl Scout Bucks earned through the Cookie Program DOUBLE in value when used toward GSWPA-sponsored camps!

Any girl achieving Super Seller status by selling 600 packages or more will also receive an invitation to the exclusive Super Seller party in the spring and a special patch!

MagNut - which stands for magazines, nuts and candy - is a great way to help your Girl Scout fund the fun she'll have this year. Whether she's in a troop or an Indie Girl Scout, she can participate online, in-person (or both!) to reach her goals. The more ways she participates, the more funds she has for her Girl Scout adventures!

Troop Proceeds
Troops receive 15 percent of all sales, which totaled more than $372,000 last year! Council proceeds are used to subsidize programs and services for our members and maintain our beautiful camps. Plus troops receive an additional 2 percent in troop proceeds for online magazine/photo keepsake, nuts and candy orders.

Girl Scout Bucks and Recognitions
Girls can earn fun Recognitions or can opt for Girl Scout Bucks that may be used for GSWPA camps and programs, service unit-sponsored day camps, Council Shops and Girl Scout registration fees. Girl Scout Bucks earned through Magnut DOUBLE in value when used toward GSWPA-sponsored camps.
