About the Fall Product Program

Every year, registered Girl Scouts take orders from friends and family for delicious nuts and candies and magazine subscriptions as part of the Fall Product Program. By participating in this program, troops get a head start on funding their activities for the year!

Being involved in the Fall Product Program ensures girls are learning to become leaders. A girl becomes a leader by discovering, connecting and taking action to make the world a better place. For girls to become leaders, they need to:

  • Understand their values and use their knowledge and skills to explore their world (Discover)
  • Care about, inspire and team with others locally (Connect)
  • Act to make the world a better place and to make a difference in their communities (Take Action)

Funds generated from this program also help offset the cost of girl programs, volunteer trainings and even camp reservations, keeping them low for all our membership!

2020 Fall Product Program
 
How the Fall Product Program works

This financial literacy program allows girls to be entrepreneurs by offering family and friends the opportunity to purchase delicious nuts, chocolates and magazines. There are multiple ways to participate:

  • In-person by taking orders using the nut order card and collecting payments
  • Online by inviting friends and family to place an order. Customers can choose to have nuts, chocolates or magazines shipped directly to them, or they can select from a group of nut and chocolate products that girls can deliver.
Important Dates
  • Sept. 29: Program begins – online ordering opens and girls may start taking orders
  • Oct. 18: Last day to take orders on the order card and the last day for online girl delivery orders
  • Oct. 19: All orders received in person must be entered into the online system
  • Nov. 2 - 7: Nut and chocolate items will be delivered to Community sites
  • Nov. 15: Last day for online orders for magazines and shipped nut and chocolate items
Benefits of participating

Girls learn and practice the Five Skills: people skills, money management, business ethics, goal setting and decision making, as they earn funds for their troop and exciting rewards.

Proceeds stay locally to benefit our council and troops earn 25% on all nut items sold and $2 per magazine sold. The Fall Product Program is an excellent way to earn start-up funds for your troop to use during the Girl Scout year to fund your activities and projects.

What's new in 2020

New flavor! Fruit Slices - a fat-free, chewy, fruity slice of deliciousness with a light sprinkling of sugar.

New Girl Scout collectible tin is a remake of a vintage Girl Scout uniform filled with tasty Mint Treasures. Our other tin will have Pecan Clusters.
