What Does a Year of Girl Scouts Cost Council?

If your daughter participated in the Fall Product Sale and the Cookie Program, we thank you! Your daughter is developing the 5 skills (goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics) and is raising funds to help support her troop and Girl Scouts Heart of the Hudson.

Girl Scouts Heart of the Hudson invests about $250 per girl, per year. Shop sales, Fall Product Sale and the Cookie program bring in about $185 per girl. Our goal is to generate the remaining support our programs need through multiple, diverse revenue streams, including donations, to ensure that girls today and tomorrow receive the best Girl Scouting has to offer.

What About the Money I Pay for Troop Dues?

Troop dues are determined by each troop and vary in amount and frequency. They may cover uniforms, books, materials and outings, but do not support Girl Scouts Heart of the Hudson in providing girl programs available throughout the year to Girl Scouts at every level, volunteer training, membership recruitment and the maintenance of our many facilities across our seven counties.

Do You Also Ask Businesses to Donate?

Our largest group of donors are the family, friends and alumnae of Girl Scouting because they know the tremendous impact it has on the lives of girls. When our members support Girl Scouts, corporations and foundations are more likely to support Girl Scouts. They take notice of the percentage of our membership who also donate to council.
