Welcome to scouting! Each year fundraising chairpersons like yourself start to plan budgets to support their annual pack activities. Gourmet popcorn sales offer an opportunity to raise as much as $5,000 to $30,000 in profits for our packs, troops and crews. Often we finish our fundraisers in less than 45-days clearing a path for our scouts to focus on outdoor activities for the remainder of the year.
The Fantasy Popcorn League app features a powerful Popcorn Calculator. The calculator will help you accurately plan and determine the amount (total cases) of popcorn you need in order to reach your fundraising goal. It all starts with a recommendation on the types and quantities to sell in order to reach your goal (profit and gross sales).
This app supports five main functions to help you create a successful fundraiser:
1. Setting Goals
2. Organizing Teams
3. Managing Inventory
4. Reporting Sales
This is a “Good Turn” project of the Coastal Carolina Council of South Carolina, Boy Scouts of America. The parents of Pack 9 of Mt. Pleasant, SC designed the app to help ensure our pack (and others within the council) has the tools needed to run a successful fundraiser. Every “Good Turn” download will serve as a mini fundraiser to help defer the cost of development and hosting. We appreciate your support.
Tip: Set modest goals, subtract expected military donations and be mindful that the number of scouts in your pack will often determine your success in reaching your goal.
