Where Cookie Money Goes

When you buy a box of Girl Scout Cookies, most of the money stays with the Girl Scout you purchased cookies from, her troop, and right here in our local community. Proceeds from the Girl Scout Cookie Program fund new adventures and the life-changing opportunities girls get at Girl Scouts—from trips to our nation's capital to community projects to spending the summer at camp. 

Here’s how the cookie crumbles…

 

54% goes to girl and adult programs, camps, and training

26% goes to cost of cookies and distribution

18% goes to troop proceeds, bonuses, patches, and recognitions

2% goes to administrative expenses
