Invest the First $25

We all value experiences more if we pay for them with our hard-earned money.

A wise Girl Scout leader once said, “A parent should only have to pay for Girl Scout registration one time- the first year. Proceeds from the Girl Scout Cookie Program should be used in all years after.”

Use the First $25 of Girl Scout Cookie proceeds to re-register all girls in your troop!

The First $25 not only works to give girls, parents, and leaders a jump start on membership fees, it also allows girls to invest their hard-earned Girl Scout Cookie proceeds in their futures. 

Adopting the First $25 is a great best practice for all Girl Scout troops to build a solid foundation in financial skills. Using budgeting skills, girls can power their proceeds to cover next year’s Girl Scout adventures. The First $25 also helps cross one more task off a parent’s to do list once the new school year arrives!

Not sure if your girl will participate next year?

Investing the First $25 retains her membership, allowing her to participate in all Pathways during the 2017-2018 year including camp, events, and traveling.
