2022 Fall Product Program

The GSDSW Fall Product Program is an optional council-sponsored program that combines educational activities with money-earning opportunities for the troops. The fall program is directed toward family and friends – those closest to Girl Scouting - and enables troops to earn start-up money by selling nuts, chocolates, and magazine subscriptions

Five skills girls learn through the product sale programs:

  • Goal Setting
  • Decision Making
  • Money Management
  • People Skills
  • Business Ethics

In addition to these important business and life skills, girls will also learn philanthropy through the Gift of Caring program.

Benefits for Troops: Earn Funds for Activities

The GSDSW Fall Product Program is the perfect opportunity for troops to kick off the Girl Scout year with a fun team-building activity that also generates essential funds to support troop activities. Also, new troops that have no resources in their treasury can quickly earn money to fund their needed uniforms, Journey Books, and Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting.

Why should my troop participate in the fall product program?

It’s a quick, easy, and fun way to help your troop earn those much needed start-up funds. Troops can earn money for registration, bridging, uniforms, troop materials, etc. Plus, the program offers fun activities, rewards, and patches!

Can our troop opt-out of rewards?

Will an ACH (Automated Clearing House) debit be used to collect funds due to council?

Yes, the debit will be on November 15, so make sure you have sufficient funds to cover the amount due at least seven days before this debit date. Processing times for deposits vary; do not wait until the day before the debit is scheduled to deposit money into your troop account. You should be depositing promptly and frequently and encouraging your parents to be turning over funds they or their daughter have collected.
