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 Fall Product Program also gives girls and troops the opportunity to sell magazine subscriptions (new and renewals), NEW Photo Keepsake items, and the very popular nuts and candies to earn quick and easy start-up money for their troop when many troops are in need of funds. This program is conducted both face-to-face and via the Internet through a secure program. Many people have magazine subscriptions they can renew, and everyone who has tasted the nuts and candies always end up wanting more!

We hope your girls join us as we look forward to our best Fall Product Program yet!

Proceeds
Girl Scout troops will earn 12% of all sales, as well as cool patches and cumulative recognitions. Troops can also opt to receive 13% in proceeds and just the patches, in lieu of recognitions. Troops also earn $3.00 for each completed Magazine Program Address Booklet.

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!

New This Year
Online Nut Store! 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).

As part of the QSP/Nut Online Program, emails will now include the option for customers to order, pay for and have nuts and candy delivered to their home/business. All 25 Girl Scout nut, candy and chocolate items will be available as well as 5 gift items. Troops earn proceeds for every item sold online with all sales being reported on the Girl’s Online Sales Report (GOSR).

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!
