For Cookie Volunteers

Thank you for volunteering to support your Troop’s Girl Scout Cookie program. Because of you, girls gain important skills that will help them become the leaders of tomorrow. The Girl Scout Cookie program is a great way to help girls of all ages to earn money towards all of their fun Girl Scout adventures… and it's a hands-on, leadership and entrepreneurial opportunity which teaches girls the five skills needed in both life and business.

Top five reasons you should participate in the Cookie Program:

Life Skills: The Cookie program helps you and your girls develop leadership skills for life, including goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics.

It’s EASY to participate: Your Troop Cookie Manager can access VIP eTraining, eBudde, and resources for girls to track and manage their businesses.

Financial Support for Fun Troop Activities: Your troop will earn funds to help offset the cost of activities & so much more! In the process, girls gain skills to be financially savvy.

Girls can earn fabulous rewards: Rewards help girls set goals.

Many successful businesswomen say they got their start selling Girl Scout Cookies.

Thanks to caring volunteers, LIKE YOU, girls who participate in the Cookie program gain courage, confidence and character to pursue their dreams!

Initial Sale Tips
Remember! Initial cookie orders must be entered into eBudde by 11:59pm on February 4!

Here’s how to do it:

  • Log In Here
  • First time logging in for the season?  Select "forgot password" to generate the link to access the system.
  • Receiving other error messages? Email Kelly at kdrechsler@gssc.us.

Digital Cookie Orders

  • Direct Shipped Orders automatically carry over into the eBudde system.  They will appear under the Girl Orders Tab.
  • Girl Delivered Orders need to be entered into the system by the troop, so the girl can deliver the cookies. These orders don’t carry over automatically. Only the payments do!
    • On the Troop Dashboard (towards the bottom of the screen) there will be a chart of all the boxes that need to be ordered for the Girl Delivery orders.  Please make sure the parent/guardian has not already added them into the paper card orders to avoid duplicate orders.  Questions? Email Kelly at kdrechsler@gssc.us.
