Now more than ever, we thank you for helping us address the challenges facing today’s girls. Working together, we can help girls build strong moral values and the courage, confidence, and character to make our world a better place.
Girls from every faith are welcome in Girl Scouting, and since our founding more than 100 years ago, Girl Scouts have enjoyed the support of faith-based organizations that partner with us to enrich the spiritual lives of girl members.
We thank you for joining the millions of girls and adult volunteers throughout the world who celebrated the strong moral values of the Girl Scout Promise and Law, and the shared values of the faith-based community.
If you have any questions, please contact:

March 10-16 is also our Cookie Walkabout Week for girls participating in the Girl Scout Cookie Program. This is a great way to boost girls' sales, while returning to the tradition of door-to-door cookies-in-hand neighborhood sales. Girls can decorate their wagon and send in photos displating their creativity. Download flier.
With March 12 the 101st Girl Scout Birthday, we've declared March 12 is also Girl Scout Cookie Dessert Day!
