Support the next generation of female business owners and leaders

Investing in girls through the Girl Scouts will support financial literacy and entrepreneurship programs that empower girls through the development of five essential skills: goal setting, money management, people skills, decision-making and business ethics. 

Did you know? Eighty-five percent of girls developed money management skills through the Girl Scout Cookie program, the largest girl-run business in the world.

Planning pays off

Troop 50099
Troop 50099 created a two-year business plan for selling Girl Scout Cookies at a workshop hosted by The Hill Group, and increased their sales to “Super Troop” status in that year's Cookie Program. 

This summer, the girls got to enjoy the result of their hard work. Just as they planned, the troop saved Cookie Program proceeds for two years to fund a five-day trek in the Great Smoky Mountains!
Purposeful product

Cheyenne Rhone, a Senior Girl Scout from West Mifflin, was recently featured as a young Pittsburgh entrepreneur.

Cheyenne started Hopes for the Best, her own business where she creates and sells bracelets that double as survival tools.

She made similar bracelets with her Girl Scout troop which inspired her to create her own business.
