Things to love about Fall: Crunchy leaves, fall colors, chilly air, pumpkin spice, and the Girl Scout Fall Product Program! The Fall Product Program is an annual event that helps girls set and achieve goals at the beginning of their Girl Scout year, earn proceeds for their troop and earn rewards for themselves by selling products like magazines, nuts and candy. Plus, it’s a great opportunity to stock up on stocking stuffers and holiday gifts for family, friends, teachers, neighbors and anyone else on your list.
It’s not just another fundraiser! Like the Cookie Program, the Fall Product Program provides an important ingredient for leadership by helping girls develop the 5 Skills:
- Goal setting
- Decision making
- Money management
- People skills
- Business ethics
- Girls earn 15% proceeds for each item sold for their troop. Junior troops and above have the option to opt out of girl rewards for an even bigger proceed of 20% per item sold (this decision should be a unanimous decision made by the troop as a whole).
- Troops that participate in the Fall Product Program will be given an earlier opportunity to select Council-Sponsored Cookie Booths in February 2022.
- Troops can earn an additional $.02 per package during the 2022 Cookie Program by meeting the following Fall Product Program criteria: Troop must meet their early bird membership goal of 80% and a Fall Product Program Troop PGA of $50.00.
- Service Units also earn proceeds that benefit the entire SU.
100% of funds generated from this program go toward helping girls of the Chesapeake Bay build important skills by providing activities and opportunities through Girl Scouting.
