More Than a Cookie, There are Business Skills in Every Bite

Did you know that 100% of the funds from the Girl Scout Cookie Program stay local and support troops while teaching girls from age 5 to 18 important business skills? The funds raised from customers purchasing and donating Girl Scout Cookies allow Girl Scouts to go to camp, learn outdoor adventure skills, support many programs such as STEM learning and Festival of the Arts, and provide membership scholarships for families that need the extra help joining. The funds from the Cookie Program support our troops as they find ways to grow as leaders and give back to the community.

The Girl Scout Cookie Program is a vital part of our Entrepreneurship Pillar and we need your assistance! Below are several ways you can help Girl Scouts all across our council continue to grow in courage, confidence, and character to make the world a better place.

1. Make a 100+ case (1,200 boxes) purchase of cookies for your employees. During the 2021 Cookie Program, Signature Health CARE purchased 500 cases of cookies to thank stakeholders. The staff at Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana delivered the cookies directly to the requested location free of shipping charges and will do the same for any company in our council footprint purchasing 100 or more cases of cookies.

2. Make a contribution to Operation: Cookie. Each year we donate thousands of cookies to US servicemen, servicewomen, and veterans both at home and overseas. The proceeds support the Girl Scout troops just like a traditional cookie purchase, while providing US military service persons with a sweet thank you from home. In 2021, Republic Bank & Trust continued with their tradition of supporting Operation: Cookie with a $5,000 contribution.

3. Host an internal cookie booth at your business. We can arrange for either a COVID-safe in-person booth with contactless payment or a virtual booth where your employees have a chance to purchase cookies and have them delivered to your business. It can be a fun way to provide enrichment to employees while supporting young entrepreneurs!
