 Cookie Guide for Volunteers

Welcome to the Cookie Guide for Troop and Service Unit Volunteers! We want to see you succeed - and have fun while doing it! Questions? Please email cookies@girlscoutsww.org.

Cookie Schedule 2014
After several debriefings with volunteers, girls, parents, staff and Little Brownie Bakery reps, the Product Sales team has completed the 2014 Cookie Sale Schedule. We heard a lot of strong thoughts and feelings regarding the overall length of the sale and initial delivery schedule, and incorporated that feedback into the 2014 schedule. Our goal is that these changes will help us better support volunteers, girls and parents, and help you support your service units and troops through this amazing program. 

Girl Reward Structure 2014
We also have been asking for input about our Girl Reward structure and other parts of the sale, and have been getting a lot of important feedback. Here are other changes we’ll be making based on that feedback:

  • Extending Cookie Dough expirations – We heard that having one year to use the Cookie Dough reward cards is not long enough, especially when girls are planning big trips with their troops/groups. Starting with the Cookie Dough rewards issued in 2014, the cards will be good for two years – expiring the second April after the cards are issued. For example, a card from 2014 will expire in April 15, 2016.
  • Rewarding troops for overall sales – We heard that troops would like to receive rewards on a troop level for reaching a particular goal. We also heard loud and clear that troops would like more money over anything else as a reward. This past year we offered the Goal Getter patch based on troops pre-selling a per girl average of 175 packages, and we’ll continue this reward. For 2014, we are offering an additional $.05 per package troop proceed for troops that sell 250 per girl average over the entire sale. This is based on the number of girls selling, not the total number of girls in the troop. This doesn’t mean each girl in a troop needs to sell 250 packages for the troop to earn this reward. The determination will be based upon a troop’s PGA selling number as found on the Sales Report in eBudde.
