For 30 years, the Dan Beard Council Popcorn Sale has been singularly focused on helping your unit achieve its financial goals. We know that a fully funded program means that our Scouts are experiencing all that Scouting has to offer and developing the character and life-skills that will help them for a lifetime of success. It is with this pursuit that we are proud to announce that the Dan Beard Council Popcorn Sale is back and better than ever!
The popcorn sale not only builds leadership, confidence, and fun; but it allows a Scout to learn the value of earning his own way. With a well planned sale, this one fundraiser can cover all the costs of an ideal year of Scouting! That's right, pay for camp and those overnight events with the popcorn sale, and have fun while earning prizes along the way. Remember, 70% of the funds from popcorn go directly to local Scouts to help fund their activities.
The Popcorn Sale supports three levels of Scouting! First, individual scouts and their families reduce out-of-pocket expenses. Second, the sale provides funding for packs, troops, crews and posts to carry out their activities. Finally, no other fundraiser supports the Dan Beard Council that in turn provides resources, equipment and programming for more than 33,000 youth. Selling popcorn helps to pay for camp improvements, leader training, and camp scholarships.
So Let's Sell Some Popcorn! Check out all of the cool and exciting new additions to this year's sale and you'll be popping off to success!
