Have the greatest Scouting year ever! 

History tells the story; units can and have funded the entire year with a well planned and executed popcorn sale.  Council supported money-earning programs are the only NO RISK opportunity available.  The unit investment is time, no upfront money, no contracts that put the unit at risk -


How does a unit build a successful sale?  Planning and communication is the short answer.

  • Plan a program

    Start the process with the unit program

    • Build a calendar

    • Decide on events and outings (if it isn't planned, it won't happen)

    • PLAN on every member advancing or earning recognition

  • Build a budget

  • Setting goals for a successful sale (one that will finance the whole plan and unit registration)

  • Communicating the plan, budget and goals to members and their families

  • Encouraging and rewarding success

  • CELEBRATING the end of the sale and enjoying a full year of fun - with no more fundraising!

Keep visiting the popcorn website to check out this year's success stories as the sale goes forward.  Don't let a single person in Tidewater say they did not have a chance to support Boy Scouts in their community because they weren't asked to buy popcorn!  Popcorn is available now!
