Prize Ordering Information
The Popcorn Fundraiser helps your Scouts’s Cub Scout Pack, Boy Scout Troop or Venturing Crew earn the funds they need for a great program! Scouts who participate also learn important life skills like goal-setting, public speaking, teamwork and much more. The five best ways to sell, safety tips, selling script below will give you everything you need to sell like a pro.
Five Best Ways to Sell
This is the most traditional way to sell; going door-to-door with the take order form, which you receive from your leader or council. Your customer chooses the product(s) he or she wishes to buy and writes the order on your form. You will collect the money when you deliver the product to your customers a few weeks later.
Advantages: Provides a personal connection with your customers. Higher dollars per customer than storefront sales.
This method is similar to Take Order, except you carry Trail’s End products with you to show to your customers as you visit them. The customer is able to select the products he or she wishes to buy from your product selection. You then hand over the product and collect the money right then and there.
Advantage: No return trip required for product delivery and money collection.
This is the best way to sell to your friends and family who live out of town. You can send emails to your customers asking them to purchase Trail’s End products online. Your customers click on the link in your email and can begin shopping right away. They order products online and pay with a credit card, and Trail’s End ships the products directly to your customers.
Advantages: No product delivery or money collection. Ability to sell popcorn year-round and reach your friends and family who live far away.
Your mom and/or dad take an order form to their work place. Their co-workers write their order on the order form. Your mom and/or dad deliver product and collect the money a few weeks later.
Advantages: Expands your customer base, and offices often need snacks and gifts.
Your den, pack, or troop gets permission to sell in front of a retail store or in the local mall. You set up a display with products for people to purchase as they walk by. Have plenty of products on display for people to buy.
Advantages: Gives you access to a large number of potential customers and promotes the Boy Scouts of America in the community.
Planning and conducting a strong program is the best way to keep your Scouts active and interested in Scouting. Funding that program is equally important—otherwise great plans can’t become a reality. The annual popcorn fundraiser is a proven approach to ensure that your unit can meet its program and financial goals while teaching your Scouts the importance of earning their own way. Units have used the monies they raise to cover the cost of badges and advancement, outings, trips, and summer camp fees.
The popcorn fundraiser is administered by the Cradle of Liberty Council to help make your unit successful. Here are some benefits:
