Welcome to our new page dedicated solely towards GSSNE Product Program Managers! Here, you will find Fall Product Program and Cookie Program materials specifically for your role—all in one convenient location!
Please note: these are the dates set by GSSNE for all service units. Product Program Coordinators may choose to have separate dates for the service unit.
September 30, 2023
*Booth sales run throughout February and March. Troops and Girl Scouts are required to continue to make payments throughout the program.
Service units who exceed their package sold quantity from the 2022 Cookie Program by 1-3% will receive an additional half a cent ($0.005) per package sold, 4-9% will receive an additional one cent ($0.01) per package sold, and 10% or more will receive one and a half cents ($0.015) per package sold to help with expenses in their service unit! Any outstanding debt/unpaid packages do not count towards this goal.
Individually Registered Members (IRM, sometimes known as Juliettes) can participate in the Cookie Program. Proceeds cannot be paid to IRMs per GSUSA and IRS guidelines. Instead, they earn Cookie Dough credits. They can also still earn recognition items!
If an IRM would like to participate in the Cookie Program, they will be recorded in Smart Cookies under their service unit’s 5000 number troop, for example, 5001 or 5029. Girl Scouts who are actively participating in a troop cannot be considered an IRM for the Product Programs. Service unit’s Cookie Product Program Coordinator should work with their service unit's IRMs to help them participate.
Cookie Dough credits will be awarded to an IRM who sells 100 or more packages of cookies. Cookie Dough credit cannot be transferred to another Girl Scout and cannot be replaced or refunded.
Cookie Dough can be used in our council shop or applied to GSSNE Summer Camp. Cookie Dough expires on September 30, 2023.
When Girl Scouts send e-cards to friends and family through ABC Smart Cookies, they have the option of offering their customers a Girl Delivery. This is great for friends and family who are close by or you will be seeing soon to order cookies without paying shipping fees.
How to check the girl delivered orders for your Girl Scout, troop, or service unit:
Girl Scouts/caregivers can see on the dashboard that their Girl Scout has a girl delivered order under the "packages sold" section. To view details of the order, go to "my orders" and "manage my orders". It will list all the orders she has and there's an option that says "print report" which will detail the packages sold, customer info, etc.
Troop leaders and Product Program Coordinators can look up this information through a report. Go to “reports”, “orders”, then “mobile and ecard summary”. This will show you what was ordered through girl delivered and through direct ship. Troop leaders will need to account for the girl delivered orders when they place orders with their PPCs, just like you account for paper order cards.
Everyone knows that when cookies are purchased from a Girl Scout, they are investing in so much more than a box of treats—they're investing in a Girl Scout's future.
Proudly, one hundred percent of the net proceeds from the Girl Scout Cookie sales are invested back into originating councils to fund activities and experiences for their Girl Scouts, who are busy making their way in the world and positively impacting their communities. All these things are possible thanks to the structure and design of the Girl Scout Cookie Program as designed by Girl Scouts USA.
As a result, we wanted to take an opportunity to remind everyone of the Redistribution Policy set by GSUSA on Girl Scout cookies. The following redistribution language appears on every package of Girl Scout cookies:
“The GIRL SCOUTS® name and mark, and all associated trademarks and logotypes, including GIRL SCOUT COOKIES®, THIN MINTS®, TREFOILS®, GIRL SCOUT COOKIE SALE®, GIRL SCOUT COOKIE PROGRAM®, and the Trefoil Design, are owned by Girl Scouts of the USA. [Licensee name] is an official GSUSA licensee. Baked by authority of Girl Scouts of the USA. This product is distributed and marketed exclusively through Girl Scout members. Any resale or redistribution is unauthorized.”
These statements protect the right of Girl Scouts to be the only ones to sell our cookies. This means that no one—customers, stores, or parents – may purchase Girl Scout cookies and then resell them. Councils work closely with GSUSA, including our own, to ensure that redistribution does not occur. It is our responsibility as a council that if we should become aware of redistribution, we are required to contact the parties involved and inform them of Girl Scouts’ exclusive right to sell Girl Scout cookies and ask them to stop. If our request is not honored, GSUSA requests that the product sale liaison at GSUSA be contacted immediately.
We want all Girl Scouts to feel empowered through the opportunities offered to them through the Girl Scout Cookie Program. By taking liberties with redistribution, not only are policies broken, but Girl Scout experiences are lost.
