For more than 35 years, Trails End has partnered with the Boy Scouts of America to help Scouts earn their way to Scouting adventures with more than 73 percent of the sales directly supporting local Scouting programs.
The popcorn fundraiser is a key ingredient for leadership development and allows Scouts to develop five key skills: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics.
In 2018, $2.3 million worth of popcorn was sold by the Denver Area Council and nearly $800,000 was earned in commission by Scouting units. Top units who sold more than $40,000 in popcorn earned $15,000 in commission, and $120,000 worth of popcorn was donated to the military through the annual sale.
Scouts who participate can use their funds to cover registration fees, uniforms, Scouting activities, day camps, summer camps, and high adventure experiences. In addition to the commissions, Scouts are eligible for great giveaway prizes including Amazon gift cards, Trails End Scholarships, Denver Broncos tickets, a Broncos Bunch Experience event, and much more!
Scouts who sell $2,500 in any calendar year will receive a Trails End scholarship and invest six percent of their total sales into their college scholarship while selling popcorn, which can be done online, at store fronts, or door-to-door. The top selling Scout will receive two Denver Broncos tickets and Cub Scouts who sell $1,000 in popcorn will receive a Broncos Bunch membership and participate in fun-filled activities on the football field.
Trails End is also offering a new online app and leader portal to manage sales and take credit cards with no processing fees to the units or Scouts.
