Fall Product Programs

Troop Start Up Funds.

The 2014 Fall Product Program is a council-sponsored program that enables Girl Scout troops to earn funds at the beginning of the Girl Scout year. This year's theme is Be Active! Dive In! featuring our new mascots: a mama and baby sea otter!

The Fall Product Program provides an important ingredient for leadership by helping girls develop five skills: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics. Through Girl Scouting, girls become leaders in their daily lives and prepare for bright futures!

The 2014 Fall Product Program ends on October 9, 2014! There is still time to make sure all of your customers have ordered or renewed their favorite magazine subscriptions, ordered their “to remember this” photo keepsake items and order their favorite nut and candy items either online or in person.

Remember ALL online orders must be place by 11:59 pm on Thursday, October 9, 2014. All nut and candy order cards, completed address booklets, Pay Now order forms (with payment) and Girl’s Online Sales report are due to your Fall Product Manager by October 10, 2014.

October 9: Fall Product Program officially ends
October 10: Orders due to troops
November 5 - 23: Product Pickup, distribution and money collection

Returning this Year
Be a Super Troop! All troops that participate in both the 2014 Fall Product Program and the 2015 Girl Scout Cookie Program will receive a Super Troop patch for every registered girl and troops are entered in a drawing for a prize package from Juliette’s Boutique.

New This Year
Online Nut Store as part of the QSP/Nut Online Program our online store will feature not only magazines, but Ashdon Farm’s full line of nuts and candies. All of these items will be available to order and ship anywhere in the US (shipping and handling may apply for some items).

New! Photo Keepsakes! These are a brand new, easy way to support Girl Scouts. Our new program offers a great way to help people preserve and share their memories with personalized photo keepsakes using the photos they have stored on computers, mobile devices, Facebook and Instagram. Customers can now order photo keepsakes such as photo books, holiday cards, posters, calendars and more. These items can be ordered online or by using paper order forms and will be delivered directly to the customer. Don't forget that these items make perfect holiday gifts!

As a “Thank You” for being an amazing Girl Scout volunteer, all registered troops can pick up a certificate for a FREE photo book at Membership Rallies, Leader Meetings and Fall Training to create their own Troop Yearbook!

Project Share!
This program gives girls the opportunity to support our military by collecting donations that go towards purchasing nuts, candies and magazines for active military. Girls will earn a Share patch for selling six items or more and all sales count towards nut/candy recognitions. The troop earns 12% (13% for opt-out troops) of the selling price for each order. And… the COUNCIL handles all order fulfillment and distribution. Providing a taste of home has never been so sweet!
