can be used to pay for camp – and not just ours! Many camps accept our cookie/nutty dough. It can also be used in our shops, in our online store and for event registration fees, like going to B.I.G. Expo. For our high school girls, cookie/nutty dough can help pay for graduation announcements, cap and gown - even a senior class ring! This is a wonderful way for girls to fund or earn their own opportunities over and above the troop proceeds and rewards.

Cookie/Nutty Dough – it’s come a long way!

But it still expires every year, so don’t wait to use it!

PPP PROGRESSIVE Proceeds PLAN (Created by Volunteers for Volunteers) The More You Do, the More You Earn! The Progressive Proceeds Plan (PPP), formerly known as PIP, is a completely new system designed to allow troops the opportunity to earn additional proceeds based on performance — not only for volume in sales, but more importantly for administering their sale properly. It is imperative that we stress the importance of using the systems (NutE, SNAP, Wufoo), meeting deadlines and paying their bills. There is still a large amount of additional proceeds available to earn for high sales-volume troops based on ranges of boxes sold for troops that qualify.

With this new program, your troop can earn MORE money during cookies! Did you attend fall live training? Your troop proceeds (to be received at the end of the Cookie sale) went up! Meet important deadlines? Your troop proceeds go up! And with each one of the milestones listed below for the Fall Product Sale, your troop profit will increase! The More You Do, the More You Earn!!! Fall Product milestones will include: Parents getting information to Leaders on time, helping Leaders keep the troop on track. Parents: Did you know that turning your order cards in to your troop late can cost your troop proceeds?

GSSGC Fall Sale 2012

The Progressive Proceeds Plan (PPP for short) will have a variety of milestones which will be assigned a dollar amount. At the end of the Fall Product sale, the earned amounts will be calculated and that amount will be deducted from your final payment due to Council at cookie season. If you don’t qualify for one milestone (e.g., miss a deadline, didn’t participate in the Online Magazine Sale), you still have many more opportunities to earn additional proceeds for your troop.
