Where Does the Money Go?

When customers buy Girl Scout Cookies, they’re helping power unique, and amazing experiences for girls. One hundred percent of the net proceeds from local Girl Scout Cookie sales stay within Girl Scouts of Southeastern New England! So many experiences are powered by Girl Scout Cookies!

When customers purchase a package of cookies, troops and service units earn proceeds, girls earn recognition items and camp credits, and the purchase helps fund council programs, camp upkeep, financial aid, and more!

Credit Cards and the Girl Scout Cookie Program

New for 2020, troops can now take credit cards at cookie booths through the ABC Smart Cookies website (www.abcsmartcookies.com) on any device—smart phones, tablets or desktop. No extra devices required! Simply enter the credit card information or scan with your device. The payment will be credited directly to the troop. To be able to use this feature, the troop's booth will need to be entered into the Smart Cookies database by council. Girls can also use accept credit cards for their personal orders, a feature that was added in 2019.

Epayments for Troop Bills

GSSNE offers an easy epayment option for troops to pay their cookie bills online! This epayment system can be accessed at https://sne.gsachonline.com/. For more information on getting started, click here.
