Helpful Scout Fundraising Information
Sometimes a Scout needs a little extra help to afford essentials for their own unit. Units need money for things such as:
- Camping gear
- Merit badge clinics
- Membership dues
- …and the like
While we at Rainbow Council offer a few council-led fundraisers to streamline some fundraising efforts, we also included information on other ways units can help raise money for Scouting, Cub Scouts and more!
2019 Popcorn Fundraiser
Scouts selling popcorn to raise money has been one of our more successful scout run fundraisers. The best part about selling popcorn is the learning experience that comes with it. Scouts can learn to book keep with using order forms, work “shifts” with their show and sell, and learn app navigation and management with the new Trails End App for scouts.
Below are a few resource links to get you and your Scout started on your Popcorn Fundraiser!
