Give girls MORE fun and learning
Much more than a way to raise money, the Girl Scout Cookie Program is a hands-on leadership and entrepreneurial program. Girls learn, not from a book, but from real-life experiences.
These are skills that last far beyond Cookie Season. Many successful business women and community leaders say they got their start selling Girl Scout Cookies.
Of course, the Girl Scout Cookie Program funds your girl's program activities. And it helps support GSHPA, special programs we offer, as well as facilities that benefit other area girls. All proceeds stay in our local community.
Best of all, girls love the Girl Scout Cookie Program and look forward to it each year. They enjoy the fun activities, exciting opportunities... and the chance to take charge!
Enjoy the Cookie Season with your Girl Scout! Truly, these are great cookies for a good cause. Click here to learn more about how girls and families benefit from the Girl Scout Cookie Program and to see inspirational videos of successful Girl Scouts in action!

This is How the Cookie Crumbles
All of the proceeds - every penny - from GSHPA's Cookie Program remains in our 30-counties where the cookies are sold. This revenue is used to benefit girls. Some of it directly by remaining in the Girl Scout troop/group treasury and some of it indirectly by subsidizing the cost of providing the Girl Scout program in the local area.
