Support Your Local Girl Scouts

The 2021 Girl Scout Cookie Program started January 23!

To keep our community healthy, girls are following the state COVID-19 guidelines, which means they aren't able to host cookie booths in the community at this time. But Northern California girls still have BIG goals, and they need your help to reach them!

How to Buy Girl Scout Cookies

  • Contact your favorite Girl Scout. She'll have a link to her Digital Cookie storefront to share, where you can order cookies for contactless girl delivery, or have them shipped directy to you.
  • Don't know a Girl Scout? Use the GSNorCal online shop locator below to find a Girl Scout in your area and we'll connect you with her Digital Cookie link.
  • Order from Grubhub on participating days (2/7, 2/14, 2/21, 3/7, 3/14) for either pick-up or driver delivery. NorCal Girl Scouts will be at the pick-up locations preparing your orders!
  • Spread the word—support NorCal Girl Scouts by telling your friends, family, neighbors, coworkers (EVERYONE!) to get their Girl Scout Cookies at www.ilovecookies.org!

When you buy Girl Scout Cookies, you help sustain life-changing, girl-led programs, experiences, and learning for local Girl Scouts. You also make it possible for them to support the causes they care about most, especially in challenging times. Every year, girls decide exactly what to do with their earnings—and 100 percent of the money stays local, powering meaningful impact in your community!

The Girl Scout Cookie Program plays a big role in transforming girls into the change-making, barrier-breaking leaders of tomorrow as they learn all about entrepreneurship and gain essential life and business skills that will stay with them forever, helping them continually face challenges with resilience and creativity.

How the Cookie Program Helps Pay for Girl Scouting

The Girl Scout Cookie Program helps to subsidize Girl Programs, keeping Girl Scouting affordable for all girls. In fact, the Cookie Program is vital to GSNorCal's mission of building girls of courage, confidence, and character.

Here’s what the Cookie Program makes possible:

  • Keeps camp affordable by subsidizing the registration cost
  • Supports the Girl Scout Leadership Experience which includes girl programming, curriculum, and events
  • Provides grants to girls and troops with financial barriers, so that Girl Scouting is available to all girls

Girls also earn proceeds for their individual troop, which are used for troop activities and service projects within their communities.

Concerns about Girl Scout Cookies?

Once in a while, we hear concern about the Girl Scout Cookie Program. In short, this concern arises because individuals have been fed false information about the program. As such a large organization, Girl Scouts is occasionally a target for outside entities with clear agendas. A fundamental piece you should know is that Girl Scouts does not advocate one way or another with regard to what we perceive as private issues best handled by families.

And hey, let’s let the girls have fun! We ask that adults keep adult conversations to themselves. Approaching girls with negative materials at a cookie sale is not acceptable.

We’re Committed to Inclusivity

We are an inclusive organization, and we do not discriminate or recruit on the basis of race, religion, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, or national origin. We welcome members of all abilities. The organization does not permit advocacy or promotion of lifestyle or orientation.

We Do Not Take a Political Position

Girl Scouts of Northern California does not take a position on abortion or birth control or have a relationship with Planned Parenthood. The national umbrella organization, Girl Scouts of the USA, does not have a relationship with Planned Parenthood on a national level and does not plan to have one.
