You will find Boy Scout fundraisers that work well for small groups and you will find others that are perfect for larger scout groups.
Unlike the Girl Scouts who all depend on cookie sales to raise money, Boy Scout fundraising options are chosen by each particular troop. Having that choice can be good or bad. Since there are lots of Cub Scout Fundraising ideas and Boy Scout fundraising ideas to choose from we have identified three we think will work good for scouting organizations
As is always the case, a successful Boy Scout fund raising campaign begins with clearly verbalizing the purpose of the fundraiser. The kids will gladly work hard to pay for scout camp or equipment to help with merit badges. If you simply say we are hold a fundraiser to raise money to use for the troop the results might not be as high as you would like.
So What Are the Best Boy Scout Fundraisers?
At the top of this page we have identified 8 different products that you should definitely consider for your troop. As you can see all of them are relevant to the scouting world.
The main consideration for your group will be whether your troop or one of the parents has the money to purchase a product for your scouts to sell. If you can afford to purchase items like candy or lollipops you will find them easy to sell especially to scouts wearing their uniforms.
You might get hold of your local Wal Mart or any other busy retailer in your town and ask if they would allow you to set up tables near their entry way.
No Upfront Cost Scout Fundraisers
If you don't have the money to purchase products that you can have on hand to sell your troop can try one of the many different brochure fundraisers we offer. They are great for groups that don't have money to start a fundraiser. One of the other benefits of a brochure sale is that you'll only order the products your troop has pre sold so there's no excess inventory at the end of your sale.
There are lots of choices that make a ton of sense for scouts such as flower bulbs or recycleable bags. If you want to browse all of our no upfront cost fundraisers click here.
