2018 Popcorn Fundraiser

2018 Popcorn Fundraiser

Popcorn is the annual fundraiser for the Scouts BSA programs – Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, etc.  75% of all money raised through popcorn sales stays with the pack and our local council.  $0.33 of every dollar raised stays with Pack 404, with the next $0.42 of every dollar staying with our local council – Bay Area Council.

Each Scout has a $250 goal for sales.  Of this, almost $100 stays with Pack 404.

This annual fundraiser is vital to the funding of Pack 404 programs each year, as well as in supporting council and district events within the Bay Area Council, and in funding Camp Karankawa (our local council camp).

Online Sales

Online sales are a phenomenal opportunity for your Scout, and offer several advantages.  Online sales average 4x higher revenue than face-to-face or door-to-door sales.  They also ship direct to the customer, removing the need for the Scout to deliver.

Accounts are set up via the Trails End website.  When you register, be sure to remember these details: Council – Bay Area Council; District – Northern Star; Unit – Pack 404 (not Crew or Troop 404).

Once your account is setup, the link can be shared with anyone via email, Facebook, Twitter, etc.  The registration website also has more information about the program (including scholarship opportunities).
