Mags&Munchies for Girl Scout Volunteers
The Girl Scouts of Nassau County's Mags&Munchies Program is a fun, quick, and easy way for Girl Scout Troops to earn money for projects, trips, girl programs and so much more. It's easy to earn start-up funds for your Troop! A Troop of 10 girls can easily earn from $200 to over $1000! The key to success is for each girl to participate. For example, if each girl in a Troop with 10 girls turns in a ‘Reach-Out’ booklet, the Troop right away earns $20.00.
By purchasing Mags&Munchies nuts, snacks, magazines, or photo keepsakes; families and friends can support Girl Scout Troops and Girl Scouting in the community.
Okay Junior Troops and older, it’s time for you to take a Troop vote… Does your Troop want to earn the Girl Rewards or opt out in favor of higher Troop proceeds? Troops at the Junior level and higher can vote to decide whether to take the standard 10% of sales plus the girl rewards or forgo the girl rewards and get 15% back in proceeds. Many older girl Troops vote for more money to fund a big trip or service project.
If your Troop votes in favor of taking the girl rewards, your Troop will earn:
If your Troop (Junior level +) votes to take extra money instead of the girl rewards, your Troop will earn:
Should your Girl Scouts opt to earn the girl rewards, you girls will have the opportunity to earn an assortment of fun, girl chosen rewards.
