Where Cookie Money Goes

When you buy delicious Girl Scout Cookies, you’re helping to power new, unique, and amazing experiences for G.I.R.L.s (Go-getters, Innovators, Risk-takers, Leaders) TM —experiences that broaden their worlds, help them learn essential life skills, and prepare them to practice a lifetime of leadership.

One hundred percent of cookie proceeds stay in eastern Missouri and support local Girl Scouts and their troops. That’s right, the Girl Scout Cookie Program fuels amazing adventures and relevant, hands-on programs for more than 40,000 eastern Missouri G.I.R.L.s annually.

*Denotes the 2018 Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri’s Cookie Program

In 2019, Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri troops earned $1,809,104 in troop proceeds to fund their activities, buy supplies, and support service projects in our community. Yes, that’s $1.8 million in the hands of our girls and troops to make our world a better place!

When eastern Missourians buy cookies at a store, they’re just that, cookies. But we hope by providing all of this information, our community understands that purchasing Girl Scout cookies is an investment in our future female leaders: today’s Girl Scouts!

How the Cookie Program Supports Girl Scouting

Our cookies are on a mission—each package helps to subsidize Girl Programs, keeping Girl Scouting affordable for all girls. In fact, the Cookie Program is vital to our mission of building girls of courage, confidence and character.

Such a lot for a cookie!
