Girl Scout Cookies

This weekend, Girl Scouts-North Carolina Coastal Pines launches the 2019 Girl Scout Cookie program, celebrating the largest financial investment in girls annually in the United States and a powerful entrepreneurship incubator for the next generation of female leaders.

At a time when girls’ needs and issues collect fewer than eight cents of every dollar granted by philanthropic foundations in the country, each and every Girl Scout Cookie purchase is key to supporting the change-makers of today and tomorrow.

Research shows that female-founded start-ups generate more revenue over time and per dollar than male-founded start-ups, but only 17 percent of start-ups are female-founded. Given that over half (53 percent) of female entrepreneurs and business owners are Girl Scout alums, supporting Girl Scouts as they make sales and learn essential business skills is imperative to ensuring our country has a strong workforce and economy.

Troops will be raising money to help their individual group experiences and to benefit community projects, from supporting animal shelters and food banks to working with local and state legislators to change laws.

The Girl Scout Cookie 2019 lineup includes the gluten-free Caramel Chocolate Chip, which joins classics like the Thin Mints, Caramel deLites, and Shortbread varieties.
