For Parents

What better way to bond with your daughter than supporting our Girl Scout Cookie Program? Girl Scouts of all levels look forward to participating in the Girl Scout Cookie Program each year, and we know they are excited to share in the experience with you by their side. The Cookie Program is a great way to help fund activities, community service projects, and more.

Our Cookie Program teaches girls about financial literacy, business ethics, social skills, and community service through our Gift of Caring campaign—and we’re so happy to have you a part of it all!
