THROUGHOUT THE YEAR, SCOUTING RAISES FUNDS THROUGH
EXCITING SPECIAL EVENTS
The Dan Beard Council offers several opportunities to join us at Special Events in the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky area throughout the year. Each of these events helps Scouting to serve on average 20,000 families in the Dan Beard Council. We were able to successfully hold outdoor events (marked in orange) in 2020 by following health and safety protocols. For details on each of these exciting events, click the icon below, or click here.

Total Raised in 2020 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.
SUPPORT LOCAL SCOUTING THROUGH EVERY DAY PURCHASES!
Support local Scouting by helping to support the Dan Beard Council through your every day purchases with partners like Kroger or Amazon Smile. All of these are great ways to support scouting that you may already be doing. Click here for details!

FUNDRAISING AND FINANCES FOR 2020
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.
