About Fall Product Sales

Banner click here to particiapte generic vertical (Custom)

The Fall Product Sale is a council-sponsored program that combines educational activities with money earning opportunities for troops. The Fall Product Sale is directed toward family and friends, those closest to Girl Scouting, and enables troops to earn start-up money by selling nuts, candy and magazine subscriptions.

Thank you for supporting Girl Scouts through the Fall Product Sale Program!

Five Skills

The Fall Product Program is a fun way for girls to earn money to support their dreams. It and the Girl Scout Cookie Program are part of a hands-on leadership and financial literacy program unlike any other in the world. Girls gain essential skills, not from a book, but from real-life experiences building a strong foundation for success.

Participation teaches Girl Scouts five skills to help them grow into leaders in their own life, in business and in the world:

  1. Goal Setting: Sets cookie sales goals individually and, with her team, creates a plan to reach them. She develops cooperation and team-building skills all along the way.
  2. Decision Making: Helps decide how her team spends their cookie money, furthering critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
  3. Money Management: Takes cookie orders, handles customers’ money and gains valuable and practical life skills around financial literacy.
  4. People Skills: Learns how to talk to, listen to and work with all kinds of people while selling cookies. These experiences help her develop healthy relationships and conflict resolution skills that she can use throughout her life.
  5. Business Ethics: Be honest and responsible at every step of the cookie sale. Her business ethics reinforce the positive values she is developing as a Girl Scout.

Additional Resources & Forms:

Goal Setting: Setting goals is the key to a successful sale. Troops and girls who set goals earn big. Talk about what your plans are for the fall and what the funding would be needed to make it happen. Give your girls the opportunity to fully experience Product Sale Programming and don’t skip the Goal Setting and Decision Making skill building! The Fall Product Sale isn’t as simple as saying “sell 350 boxes of cookies” since the product line is varied. By leveraging all product options, the girls can discover, connect and take action to meet their troop’s funding needs.

For example, in a troop with 10 girls: 
If each girl sells 3 magazine orders and 20 nut items, the troop earns $260!

Care to Share/Gift of Caring

A key element of Girl Scout Product Sales is our Gift Of Caring  program where we donate boxes of Girl Scout nuts, candy and cookies to the United States military, The FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties and other charitable organizations within our community. Girls participating in the Gift of Caring program earn the Care to Share patch when meeting their goals.

Fall Product Sale Program Specifics
Girls earn proceeds on Gift of Caring items the same as all other nut/candy sales. Girls earn the Care to Share Patch when selling five or more donated nut/candy items. Simply list the number of nut/candy items to be donated in the last column of the order form, and collect payment for items sold. Council will retain these items for donation. 

All Gift of Caring items are $6 each.  Please keep in mind these items will not be delivered with the troop/girl orders, but rather are retained at Council.
