2013 Cookie Sale and Benefits
In 2013, we will be doing a Direct Sale, meaning girls will have cookies in hand to sell February 2 through March 10. Yes, girls will come to your door asking to purchase Girl Scout Cookies. Girls will give you the cookies you want for $4.00 a package each right on the spot. For more information on how to purchase Girl Scout Cookies, click here.
100% of the money earned from the Cookie program stays right in your community. Every dollar you spend on a box of Girl Scout cookies makes a difference in a girl’s life. Through cookie sales and activities, girls learn to set goals, make decisions and solve problems, manage money and resources, build quality people skills, and establish proper business ethics. Over time, the skills gained set girls on a path to be leaders, in their own lives and in our community. Many successful business women today say they got their start selling Girl Scout cookies.
All your favorites will be returning for the 2013 season as featured below, including a new cookie - Mango Crémes with Nutrifusion. These tangy, refreshing tropical treats are packed with great taste AND vitamins! Now you can indulge your sweet tooth and still get your vitamins!

Support Girl Scouting and another local organization by purchasing cookies to donate through the Cookie Share program.

Are purchases of Girl Scout Cookies tax deductible?
According to the Internal Revenue Service and Girl Scouts of the USA, there are two possiblities:
1. Customers accept cookies: If individuals buy cookies for personal consumption, they have purchased a product at a a fair market value. For this reason, no part of the price of a package of Girl Scout Cookies is tax deductible.
2. Customers leave cookies with the Girl Scouts: Those customers who do not receive any Girl Scout Cookies, but purchase a package for the Cookie Share Program, do not benefit directly from paying for the cookies. These individuals may treat the purchase prices as a charitable contribution as the Girl Scout will donate these cookies to a charity of the her choice.
