Popcorn

The annual popcorn sale provides much needed fundraising for units and Scouts. We all got creative in 2020 to ensure that the fundraiser was a success. This included socially distant sales tactics such as laminated order forms that could be easily disinfected and poster sized order forms that allowed Scouts to stand back while customers could still see what we had to offer. We also saw a large increase in the volume of online orders where product is shipped direct to customers with no need to handle product or cash. We had 85 units sell a total of $228,325. That includes 20 units that did not sell last year, but participated in 2020. Many of them leveraging the online sale in its free shipping option. All told our units ended up with over $87,958 in cash to fund their adventures. We had 3 individual Scouts sell over $3,000 with our top seller having $4,000 in sales.

 

Friends of Scouting and General Operating

We ended the year with $417,185 raised through traditional Friends of Scouting and $60,550 through the Three Point Dining Hall Campaign for a total of $477,735. 1,450 donors made contributions to these campaigns for an average gift of $329.47.These contributions support Scouting operations throughout the Council. Foundations and Grant funders provided $182,558 (which excludes support from the Champlin Foundation for camperships and capital support) in support in 2020.
