Money earning is an essential element of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience. Adult volunteers coach the girls as they earn and manage money to pursue their goals. Girl Scout troops/groups earn money in two ways:
Group Money Earning
Groups are encouraged to participate in Council-sponsored product sales as their primary money earning activity. Group money earning helps girls earn even more for their BIG goals!
Troop/Group Leaders are approved to coordinate group money earning activities using the Do's & Don'ts guidelines below. Written approval is no longer required. If this is your first time planning a money earning activity, use the Group Money Earning Checklist.
Plan a Girl Scout program!
Use the [Event Planning Guide]
Cell phones for refurbishment
Used ink cartridges
Christmas tree recycling
Lunch box auction
What if there's a adult who wants to have a product party (Pampered Chef, Thirty One, etc.) and donate a portion of the proceeds to the troop? That's ok! The girls may not actively participate in activities that earn money for the troop by selling commercial products. However, their parents/guardians may choose to participate and then donate the proceeds to the Girl Scout troop.
