Simply select the “donate cookies” option from the order card. Your local council makes a decision about what charity(ies) will be the recipient(s) of donated boxes of Girl Scout Cookies. When you donate, you help bring a smile to someone’s face while you support a girl’s cookie goals.
The local Girl Scout council partners with a charity(ies) to be the recipient(s) of donated boxes of Girl Scout Cookies. The selected charity is indicated on the Orders page, and you can find out more information by visiting the council’s website. The council’s name will be included on the order confirmation email.
If you buy Girl Scout Cookies and take the cookies home (to consume them), you've purchased a product at a fair market value. For this reason, Girl Scout Cookies used in this way are not tax-deductible.
Many Girl Scouts ask customers to pay for one or more packages of cookies for use in Take Action or service projects or as part of a council-approved Gift of Caring or Cookie Share program. If you would like an acknowledgement of your donation for tax-deductible purposes, contact your Girl Scout’s council.
No. The local council works with girls to select the varieties that will be donated to the Girl Scout council charity of choice.
