Parent Financial Responsibility


Parent Financial Responsibility

  • Cookies are $4.00 per package; 75 cents is returned directly to the troop.
  • Girl Scouts not affiliated with troops do not earn the 75 cent troop proceeds. Their achievements are rewarded with program credits so they may participate in Girl Scout Leadership Experiences.
  • Customers pay for cookies when they are delivered.
  • Cash is the preferred method of payment.
  • If you do accept checks they should be made payable to the troop and NSF checks are the responsibility of the troop.
  • When accepting any check, record the valid driver’s license number and the expiration date.
  • Verify the picture and address listed on the license. Record any differences on the check. Make sure a telephone number is recorded on the check.
  • Put your initials and the troop number on the check.
  • Girl Scout funds (checks or cash received for cookies) are not to be “mingled” with a parent’s personal account. Cash and checks intended as payment for cookies must be deposited into a Girl Scout bank account.
  • Parents/guardians should turn in money received for cookies to the Troop Cookie Manager weekly/frequently throughout the sale. Always request a signed receipt.
  • Parent/guardians are responsible to pay for all packages that they receive per the signed Product Sale Program Parent/Guardian Agreement. Product may not be returned.
  • If a girl’s family still owes money from a previous product sale, the girl may not participate in individual sales; she may sell cookies only at a troop booth location.
