MagNut - Fall Product Program

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!

MagNut comes at the perfect time of year, since the products make fantastic stocking stuffers and holiday gifts for family, friends, teachers, neighbors and anyone else on your list.

The 2018 MagNut program ended on November 25, 2018.
This year's program featured:

  • A more simplified online process
  • Additional cookie proceeds for troops who participate in the fall MagNut program
  • Girls and volunteers can create their own likeness avatar and earn it on a patch

How it Works
 

Girls can offer a variety of products to family and friends in two ways.

  1. Online via the M2 platform 
    Our new mobile friendly online platform makes it fun and easy for girls and troops to participate!

    Order taking began on October 1!

    Girls and their leaders will have fun creating their unique avatar that looks just like them. The girls can even earn their own avatar patch!

    Girls then send emails to friends and family to purchase nuts/candy, magazines online (with the New Online Girl Delivered Option, formally known as Nut Promises) and/or Operation: Sweet Appreciation donations.

  2. In Person
    Take the traditional route and help your Girl Scout go door-to-door in your neighborhood. Ask friends where you worship and family to help her reach her goal with the Nut Order Taker. She can leave her personalized business card with her customers so that they may shop for magazines online. Nuts & candy payments are collected when she delivers the product.

    Customers can also help your Girl Scout send honey roasted peanuts to the military at-home and overseas by adding a donation to Operation: Sweet Appreciation on their order!  

    OR...Girls can do both online and in person sales! 
Product Offerings

Customers can choose from a variety of great snacks that are perfect for gifts or just to enjoy in-person!

Customers can purchase 16 yummy treats on the in-person nut order form, or from an expanded online line-up and have it shipped directly to them. View product line-up.

Program Benefits

Five Skills and Online Learning
Like the Cookie Program, the MagNut Program helps girls to develop five skills they'll use throughout their lives, including goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics

Girls also learn online business skills by setting up their own personalized online sales sites, promoting it to family and friends, and tracking their goals online. 

Troop Proceeds
Troops receive 15 percent of all sales, which totaled more than $300,000 last year! Council proceeds are used to subsidize programs and services for our members and maintain our beautiful camps. Junior level troops and above can opt out of individual recognitions to earn an additional 5 percent in proceeds. 

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. View the 2018 girl recognition selections on page 4 of the MagNut Program Family Guide
