When participating in 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. Unit’s also have the ability to fund their entire year’s program through the popcorn sale alone. That means less fundraising, less time asking parents for money, and more time for Scouting fun. All proceeds stay right here to help support local Scouts. That’s 73% that goes to Scouting. While a portion of that goes to directly support your Scout unit, the remaining portion gets reinvested into supporting your unit, and into local programs and supplies. For example, a bunch of the materials you received for free to support your popcorn sale this year, came from popcorn. New program equipment like bows and arrows, and facility improvements like composite decking at Cub World were also funded in part by popcorn. Together we make a huge difference to support local Scouting program and the adventures of a lifetime!
