How you can shine with the MagNut Program

The Cookie Program is still a few months away, and there’s a lot of fun stuff to do right now! Build your troop’s funds at the beginning of the year through the MagNut Program, which helps girls set and achieve goals by selling magazines, photo keepsakes, nuts and candy.

The MagNut Program kicks off on October 1, so get ready! Here are all the ways the MagNut Program can help you “Be Brilliant and Shine On!”

Fund the fun
The 2016 MagNut patch
Troops receive 15 percent of all sales, which totaled more than $300,000 last year! Council proceeds are used to subsidize programs and services for our members and maintain our beautiful camps. Plus troops receive an additional 2 percent in troop proceeds for online magazine/photo keepsake, nuts and candy orders.

Earn Girl Scout Bucks and awesome recognitions
Girls can earn Girl Scout Bucks to use for GSWPA camps and activities, service unit-sponsored day camps, council shops and Girl Scout registration fees. Girl Scout Bucks earned through the MagNut Program DOUBLE in value when used toward GSWPA-sponsored camps, and girls can also earn fun Recognitions!

Choose your participation

Girls can customize their participation in the MagNut Program to make it work for them. Sell online, sell in person, or both. Sell only nuts and candy, or add magazine and photo keepsakes to the mix to boost your sales even more. And the Reach Out Booklets are an easy way for girls to help her troop earn funds. Do it all, or just some. It’s up to you! And girls don’t even have to be part of a troop to participate. 

Develop the Five Skills
Like the Cookie Program, the MagNut Program helps girls to develop Five Skills they'll use throughout their lives: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics.

Simplify holiday shopping

Camp Pack Tin with Mint Treasures
All of the products sold through the MagNut Program make fantastic stocking stuffers and holiday gifts for family, friends, teachers, neighbors and anyone else on your customers’ shopping lists! And the online exclusive corporate gifts are great for those looking for gifts for clients, employees and colleagues.

Send treats to the military

Help us send Honey Roasted Peanuts to our military at home and overseas while earning more MagNut funds by encouraging customers to donate to Operation: Sweet Appreciation. It’s a win-win! BONUS: Sell at least 20 cans for OSA and you could be eligible to enter to win passes to Splash Lagoon!
