After paying for the cost of Fall products and cookies, all proceeds stay in San Diego and Imperial counties to provide Girl Scout programs in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM); the outdoors; life skills; travel; entrepreneurship, and more.
It’s important to remember that troop members share the proceeds they’ve earned by participating in product programs. Proceeds don’t belong to any one girl or group of girls in the troop. Also, girls decide how they’ll use their funds.
Proceeds must be used for the purpose of Girl Scouting. Troop funds cannot be used to purchase memberships or uniforms for another organization.
“All money and other assets, including property, that are raised, earned, or otherwise received in the name of and for the benefit of Girl Scouting must be held and authorized by a Girl Scout Council or Girl Scouts of the USA. Such money and other assets must be used for the purposes of Girl Scouting.”–Girl Scout Blue Book of Basic Documents
Individual girls in troops are eligible for cookie rewards. Independently registered members can earn cookie bucks in lieu of cash proceeds.
