That is a pretty steep price for such a small box of cookies; however, my granddaughter is a Girl Scout, so I am buying three boxes. Instead of taking them, I am using the option of donating them to servicemen. I cannot imagine that they can sell these small boxes if the price increases any more, though the proceeds are for a good cause.
No! Like everything else it's time to cut back.I will save money and calories!
I was told that $.50/box was all the troops receive & the other $3.50 goes to national, don't know that to be fact, but I do find it interesting. I remember when they were $1.25/box.
I'm 62 and I remember when they were $1.00
It is a tradition and like everything else the price goes up but we continue to buy because it is something we do every year. I really wish the troops got more of the money right into their accounts but I do know from experience that the money is spent for the girls through camp grounds and other activities.
Like with other true fundraising campaigns I look at the benefactor. I have two former Girl Scouts and the experience was quite beneficial for them. One even qualified for her Gold Award. She has become quite the successful leader in her own community. So, I will gladly pay $4.00 for five boxes of cookies. Small investment for such a great cause...
Like 10:03 my granddaughter is also a Girl Scout. I buy 3 boxes for us and 3 boxes for military. I will do the same this year.I need to check but I believe the bakery earns 30% and the local Girl Scout Council earns 70%. The local Girl Scout Council than doles out the money to their local Girl Scout Troops. Each GS Council sets its own rate for the troops, generally 10 to 20%. So the Bakery gets $1.20, the Council $2.80 and gives the local Troops between .$0.28 and $0.56 for each box sold.
actually the local troop can earn up to .80 box with incentives and for older troops .85 with no incentives
