The 2024 Cookie Program will begin on Sunday, Jan. 28! Your support of the world’s largest girl-led entrepreneurial program makes it possible for girls in San Diego to develop key business skills that will help them excel in future endeavors.
In 2022, customers purchased over 2 million packages of cookies. More than 9,500 Girl Scouts participated, engaging customers both in their communities, and online through Digital Cookie. All cookie proceeds remain in San Diego and Imperial Counties to benefit local Girl Scouts.
Where does the $6/package go?
When you buy a package 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.
The Girl Scout Cookie Program is the largest girl-led entrepreneurial program in the world and the largest financial investment in girls annually in the United States! By setting and reaching cookie goals, girls fund activities, community service and leadership projects, campouts, and travel opportunities they choose with their troop.
Participating in the cookie program helps girls develop five business and leadership skills:

Cross the country to see the Grand Canyon, or cross an ocean for the travel experience of a lifetime? Go to summer camp, or earn one of Girl Scouting’s highest awards? It’s up to her and her troop—they own their adventure!
That’s the thing. When girls participate in the Girl Scout Cookie Program, they get more than life-changing experiences and adventure. They also develop essential life skills—goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics—all while soaring in confidence and practicing leadership the Girl Scout way to lift one another up and change the world, together.
What an experience! That’s why we always focus on the interaction between cookie boss and cookie fan, and not cookie parent and cookie fan—this is SO important! Enjoy your favorite cookies even more knowing you helped her do and learn amazing things.
