FUNDRAISING

THROUGHOUT THE YEAR, SCOUTING RAISES FUNDS THROUGH

EXCITING SPECIAL EVENTS

The Dan Beard Council offers several opportunities to join us at Special Events throughout the year. In the Spring and Summer months in the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky Area, you can “skip work” and play golf, shoot sporting clays, or drive a racing machine with Board Members and other VIP’s of the Council and support Scouting at the same time. Each of these events helps Scouting to serve more than 20,000 youth and families in the council. There are many opportunities for you, your business, or your business colleagues to spend a day of fun. For details on each of these exciting events, click the icon below, or click here.

POPCORN

$1,898,978
Total Raised in 2019 Dan Beard Council Popcorn Sales

With popcorn, Scouts gain self-confidence, people skills, money management, salesmanship, and business ethics–things that help prepare them for life! These are great values and skills for youth to learn. Our Scout units also have the ability to fund their entire year’s program through the popcorn sale alone. That means less fundraising, reduced costs for parents, and more time for Scouting fun! All proceeds stay right here to help support local Scouts.

FUNDRAISING AND FINANCES FOR 2019

A 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, the Council operations are completely funded by the Friends of Scouting annual giving campaign, corporate sponsorships, the popcorn sale, activity revenue, and the United Way. Funding is used primarily for program delivery in the form of camp operations, training, and support to provide many Scouting events held throughout the Council each year. Thanks to the generosity and support of the people and businesses of the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky area, the Council has a fiscally sound operation that proves the Council to be good stewards of its financial resources and strong providers for the future of the Scouting movement in our area.
