It takes a lot to make a Pack go. We could do nothing without our outstanding
group of ScoutParents. We
could also do nothing without funding. Keeping costs low is a big desire of the
Pack since it affords more fun to more Cub Scouts. Annual membership fees and
weekly dues form a solid base upon which to build but it is often necessary to
raise additional money to defer the cost of program expenses and to help subsidize
the cost of events that our Pack participates in.
To this end, the Pack frequently arranges for FUNdraising opportunities. In
most cases, a portion of the proceeds raised directly benefits the Cub Scout
involved in the sale. These monies will be placed in the Scout's Individual Account
which can be used for other Scouting events including the purchase of event
tickets and summer camps. In other cases, where individual contributions are harder
to assess, proceeds will be placed in the Pack's general fund to offset the costs
associated with operating the Pack and to reduce the initial cost of Scouting events.
Trail's End Popcorn
Our primary FUNdraiser is the semi-annual Cub Scout
popcorn sale which many
Packs participate in (held each Fall and each Spring). Fully 70% of the
proceeds generated from this sale stay with local scouting, divided between the
council, the local pack and individual scout.
Check the popcorn page
for more details including a list of items for purchase and directions on order pickup.
Throughout the Scouting year, the Pack has other efforts including an annual
Christmas tree sale and sales of other products. Details on these FUNdraisers
are released as appropriate.
NOTE: The Pack realizes that not everyone is comfortable with FUNdraising. We
also understand that not everyone is a salesman and not everyone has the same
network of friends and family. So true to our background, all we can say is
Do Your Best.
