The Girl Scout Cookie Program is the nation’s leading financial literacy and entrepreneurial program for girls. Buying Girl Scout Cookies is about more than just handing over money for a box of cookies. It’s about the skills a girl gains from interacting directly with customers. It’s about the experience of running her own cookie business and working with others. Selling cookies teaches goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics—aspects essential to leadership, success and life. Starting Jan. 5, 2019, Girl Scouts will be taking orders for cookies. Cookie delivery begins Feb. 17 and booth sales begin Feb. 17. The cookie program ends March 24.

Grant Gopher Database Search Tip!
Are you looking for grants to support projects in the classroom? You'll find those types of grants in our "Education" category. This category is for all grants related to in-school K-12 and higher education programs.
• Select your state and county • Select the Education program area • Use the keyword classroom
These types of grants are usually offered via a bi-annual or annual grant cycle so you might not see something available for you now, but keep checking in. Pro users receive an email alert when new grants matching their saved searches are added or updated. Not only that, but they're often notified well in advance of the cycle being open (as soon as we have the dates confirmed), which really helps with the grant planning process. Happy searching!
