Fall Opportunity Sale

The Fall Opportunity Sale (FOS) is a great way for troops to earn proceeds early in the Girl Scout year to ensure plenty of girl-led activities happen all year long! Additionally, this sale for friends and family introduces girls to financial skills they will use throughout their lives. Troops earn 20 percent of the sale proceeds, and girls earn fun recognitions, too.

We are excited to partner with Ashdon Farms and QSP to offer online sales of nut and candy products as well as magazines. The products are delicious, and fun favorites this year include Honey Roasted Mixed Nuts and English Butter Toffee.

The Share Program also allows Fall Opportunity Sale customers the option of making a purchase that gives something back to others. Share Program donations are given to military members or to the Kansas Food Bank, which distributes food for hunger-relief programs across Kansas! The Share Program includes an optional $5 share (donation) toward magazines for the military.  

Thank you for your dedication and commitment to Girl Scouts! Together, we are building girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place.
