Building a strong annual program is a great way to keep Scouts
active and interested in the Scouting program. Funding your program is
equally important, as Scouts benefit from paying their own way.
council's suggested money-earning project is the annual popcorn sale.
With a little imagination, many units have raised sizable amounts of
money for unit accounts.
Units need a secure and stable source of
income that a strong popcorn sale can provide. Monies raised by units
have been used to cover the cost of badges and advancement, special
events, and camp fees. Units can create an account for each Scout who
sells and allow individuals to use those funds for camps or events.
popcorn sale also benefits the council as a whole by helping us serve
volunteer leaders and members by providing better programs and camping
