Why Sell Popcorn
Popcorn is an important fundraiser not only for Council but for many Units.
The Popcorn Sale has great products and great incentives to motivate our Scouts, Parents, and Leaders!
- Great variety of flavors - something for everyone!
- Special Incentives for the "elite" sellers PLUS receive an exclusive invitation to attend the Popcorn Victory Party!!
- Up to 35% Commission for units plus Prizes
Where does the Money Go?
In addition to a portion of the sale going to Council to fund things like Camperships, council programs, and improvements at our two great Camps, Units and individual Scouts earn commission as well.
Units keep their commission and may use it to defray costs of a big trip, summer camp, new gear, or just regular operating expenses. How Units use the commission they earn is entirely up to them. Many units pay for their entire year's program with this one fundraiser!
In other words, all of the money gets directly re-invested into local Scouting!
