Cookies & Financial Literacy


world of good

The Girl Scouts of Montana and Wyoming offer two Financial Literacy programs each year. In October, girls participate in the Fall Nut and Candy Program. Beginning in January, girls participate in the Girl Scout Cookie Program.

Girl Scout Financial Literacy Programs benefit everyone involved in the Girl Scouts of Montana and Wyoming. The money earned during the GSMW Financial Literacy Programs stays in our council to support the Girl Scout Program for more than 7,000 girls and adult volunteers throughout Montana and Wyoming. Proceeds help support camp programs and facilities, our council-sponsored programs, leader training and adult development programs, property maintenance and development, outreach programs and financial assistance.

Girls participating in the Financial Literacy Program learn first-hand the value of making plans and setting goals. They invest their time and energy and, in the process, earn money for their Girl Scout troops. That money can then be used to pay for pins and badges, field trips, fees for council and service unit events, and other special activities that the girls choose to do.

Through participation in the Financial Literacy Programs, girls also learn the 5 Basic Skills that will serve them their entire life and help to make them successful in everything they do.

Cookie Program

The Girl Scout Cookie Program is one of the most comprehensive business, entrepreneurial and financial literacy programs available for girls today. Cookies are sold in Montana and Wyoming once a year.

The Magazine and Nut program

The Fall Nut and Magazine Program not only provides an opportunity for troops to earn money for the beginning of the year, it is also an important learning opportunity. Girls will set and achieve goals, manage their own business plans and have a great time working together with their friends and family.
