Money Earning Guidelines for Girls, Service Units and Adults
Helping girls plan, budget, earn, and manage money is an integral part of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience. Funds to carry-out troop plans are primarily provided by council-sponsored product sales and troop dues. When supplemental funds are needed, additional council-approved money earning activities can be utilized.
Girl Scout Daisies are not allowed to participate in money-earning activities outside of council-sponsored product sales.
Money Earning by Girls
Girls should earn funds by providing a service or product. They should also be learning while earning, even if they just learn they have to work hard and as a team to meet their goals.
